Every year around this time we used to make pumpkin muffins. We still do, in fact. I made them a couple weeks ago to send to the kids. Nora texted me over the weekend to say, “I made pumpkin muffins to give out at the farmers market ’cause I was running the ebt machine for food stamps today, and people loved them.”

They really are good. I always used to send them to school for Nora’s birthday.

It needs to get just a bit colder here, but it might be cold enough where you are —
