After a spate of heat waves, we finally have cooler weather in Santa Barbara, and it was even overcast today! That means several things, most importantly that scones and pies may now be baked, at my leisure (as is my wont).
Today I stocked up on pumpkin pye stuff, and am now ready for scarfing some grimace proportions of lovely, life-sustaining pumpkin pie in the coming months.
You see, one dreadful year there was a pumpkin shortage. After that horrid event, when I was forced to make sweet potato pie instead, I always stock up early just in case.
