omg... and I thought I lived in the sticks. For the life of me I can't figure out how this small, farm town even has a Starbucks. Yesterday was my day to be mopey... dunno why either. I spent a good portion of the day either on here on laying on the couch. I'll overnight one to you right away!

Aww... I'm sorry you can't get rid of that feeling. Dogs (and cats for that matter) are great at helping us through difficult moments. They're so intune to us. If you need to talk... you can always PM me. :)

I wish they would make pumpkin vodka. All I see is Pumpkin ale and Pumpkin beer. I will be getting a bottle of this Pumpkin Cider tomorrow and maybe some spice rum to try it with.
I know its not from a store and i have no idea how it tastes being I don't drink alcohol anymore but here is a recipe I found and thought you might like to try it.....

Try this pumpkin-infused vodka in the Smashing Pumpkin Martini, or use it to invent a holiday cocktail of your own.
The bar at Fifty Seven Fifty Seven in New York City, where it was created, uses a liter-sized Stolichnaya bottle to hold the vodka-pumpkin mixture while it steeps.
Yield:
Fills a one-liter bottle (a scant quart).


1 1/2 cups (750 ml) Stolichnaya cinnamon vodka
3/4 cup (175 ml) Stolichnaya vanilla vodka
3/4 cup (175 ml) Stolichnaya vodka
2 whole vanilla beans
2 cups raw pumpkin meat, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Combine vodkas in bottle or other glass container. Add pumpkin meat and vanilla beans and let sit for 1 week. If necessary, when mixing cocktails strain the vodka as you pour it into the shaker. Consider using toasted pumpkin seeds or some of the vodka-soaked pumpkin as garnish.

I'm going to have to find myself a bottle of that somewhere. I know Pinnacle makes a flavor for everything but I didn't know that had one for Pumpkin Pie. Thanks for the heads up.

I wonder how those marshmallows would be in Rice Crispy treats, hmmmmm

For a GREAT fall drink try a glass of warm/hot apple cider with a splash of ginger brandy, you'll thank me later! It's a great warmer upper, stir with a cinnamon stick if you want as well......

The Pumpkin vodka I found is awesome. I'm still trying out recipes for the best tasting martini/drink for my party this weekend to make with it. It's hard because I am on this diet so I have someone else tasting for me. I know that sounds boring but when he thinks I'm might like something then I try it. I will have to get another bottle of this pumpkin cider since everyone already drank the first bottle I had.

How much is that pumpkin spiced cider at Aldi's?

I would like to list some fall shakes / drinks I like (my favorite starting at 1) because you got me in mood with this topic: (Before I clicked on the topic, that's what I thought it was).
1. Pumpkin Shake (Mcdonalds) - I think new this year..
2. Caramel Apple Shake (Steak N Shake)
3. In general, Apple Cider -- I think I might want to try that Aldi's one..
4. Fuji Apple Pear from Walmart - by Clear American brand - 0 calories - This tastes very close to Apple Cider, so I will mention it.
5. Dairy Queen Blizzard Pumpkin Pie
