It's always hard to let go of the summer. When should we start drinking pumpkin beer? When do you have that first cider donut? This year, I kicked fall food season on the west coast.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons because EVERYTHING is pumpkin-flavored and, God, do I love pumpkin! My first pumpkin food of the season is the pumpkin waffle you see above. I devoured this breakfast with a fall twist at Cafe 222 in San Diego. It was so light and fluffy, with plenty of pumpkin taste. The butter even had a little blueberry in it.

Check out that cupcake! You're looking at a pumpkin cupcake with cream cheese frosting. It's from the famed Sprinkles in Las Vegas. All of their cupcakes are crazy good and this one was no exception!

Sure, the end of the summer is sad, but all of the fall foods that are on the way should be enough to make us all smile. 

BTW, I haven't had any pumpkin beer YET, but I can picture myself pouring some Shipyard Pumpkinhead in the near future. Yes, with a cinnamon rim! , , ,
