It’s October! The leaves are changing, you’re getting outside to climb, girls are wearing tights as pants which drives you absolutely crazy (I do it all the time), and you’re craving pumpkin in all your food. So here is my obligatory pumpkin recipe for the month 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it for breakfast one morning before you go climbing in your tights!
