Stripes and Roses


Good morning everyone!

It’s a cold rainy day in New York. The weather is unpredictable right now, there are days when it’s hot and humid and then there are other days when it’s cold and windy. This weather reminds me of pumpkins.

A couple of years back I was in a serious relationship, it was around fall when everything turned to pieces and we could no longer make things work. It’s always difficult once you and a significant other have established some sort of routine because once the relationship is over you can really feel the absence of this person’s presence. My uncle Tony noticed that I was not copping very well and so he took me and my grandmother pumpkin picking. It was a very cute gesture, as a child I had always just gone to the supermarket, bought a pumpkin and painted it and that was the end of it. That year we went to this park in Long Island and there were thousands of pumpkins, some were huge and others fit on the palm of my hand. There were also some that were light colored and others that were very dark and crooked.

We bought two small pumpkins and came home to bake, what turned out to be four delicious pumpkin pies. Two of them were your original pumpkin pie and the other two were pumpkin cheese cake. What amazed us was the amount of purée that come out of these small pumpkins. We had to go back to the supermarket to buy more crust because we only had two pie crusts when we started. It was a lot of delicious fun making these pies with my uncle. Ever since then whenever fall arrives I begin to crave pumpkin pie, it’s become my fall comfort food and the closest I’ve gotten to a pumpkin pie is the pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks lol. I guess this is my equivalent of the phrase “When life gives you lemons make lemonade”.
