The closest thing I get to a treat is I always bake a ham to take to the family Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers.  Which reminds me...  I need to bake one soon for umm...  Practice.  Yeah that's what we'll call it.

Ham:

Bacon without the racing stripes or as much horsepower.

Is there such a thing as pumpkin cake?

Yes. 

 

Starbucks sells that year-round @ about $2 a slice. Dunkin-Donuts currently has a Pumpkin Cake donut (~$1) on offer. It is Pumpkin Cake in the shape of a donut.

 

So, sure. Pumpkin Cake is a thing.

[Re: Pumpkin Pie...]

 

As food, drink, and treat? I mean, perfectly valid answers, just curious. 

Food. 

Because it is a pie. With a crust. :huh:

Pumpkin spice is a lie. That is clearly chai spices put to another use. I also need some chai tea. And chai is good for all seasons, but does seem extra autumny.

 

Eh?  While it is true that Masala chai (spiced-tea) is based off of an ancient recipe, the tea version we know is fairly modern and arose from the British and their tea plantations of the 1830s.  Even then it didn't really gain popularity as a drink until the 1900s.  "Pompkin" pie goes back to at least 1790, though with a slightly different spice mix than the modern "traditional" pumpkin spice.

 

Regardless, traditional Masala chai karha is a cardamom base and pumpkin spice isn't.

 

Also, chai = tea so saying "chai tea" is like saying "tea tea."  ::P:  But don't worry, there are a lot of restaurants around here that serve the infamous "queso cheese"

 

And no, I don't drink much tea.  My sister-in-law however...

Cake is... nice. But it's just cake. Pie is that thing to which praises are sang. Apple pie, berry pie, strawberry pie, banana pie, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, it matters not.

 

That reminds me... I need to buy lard so I can make a pie ::P:

Unless of course it is a Cake Brownie.

Not overly heavy on the Chocolate, a nice balance of dark and milk will make for yummy eating and drinking when served with a glass of cold milk.

I'm pretty sure that there are restaurants on Table Mesa in Boulder that serve chai tea and queso cheese.

 

Unfortunately, it looks like the only "restaurant" at the La Brea Tar Pits doesn't serve either.

 

:rolleyes:

Greatings gentle beings! Once again, I, the Haminister of Truth dons the sacred robes of the Quisitor for this the spookiest of months, and also the month with the high holy week of ReaperCon!

 

Question for Tuesday, October 2nd:

Pumpkin Spice season is upon us. What is your favorite autumnal food, drink, and treat?

 

Answer to all three:

Whatever I don't need to make myself.::P:

 

Food: the turkey soup (it usually ends up being more of a stew) that I make with the turkey carcass a few days after Thanksgiving.

Drink: Nothing particularly special here, although warm drinks are appreciated more since the temperature is going down.

Treat: Pumpkin/apple/cherry/mixed berry pie

Does a bonfire count as a treat? Cause it involves good friends, good food, and good drink, so hard to beat.

True. Chai tea is in a way tea-tea. Lake Tahoe is also lake-lake.

There are two on Table Mesa within walking distance that serve chai tea. However, the best chai in town is at the fancy tea house on the creek. The queso cheese would be elsewhere.

I make the BEST pumpkin pie ever. People get angry at me when I won't make one for them, and are often willing to pay me $20 each for the things.

Orly? :ik_oops: I have also been accused of making the "best" pumpkin pie (two of my main promoters are my husband and mom, so they're biased). But I am always interested in improvement. What do you do to make your pie excell? (Assuming you don't mind sharing/ have time to share.)

Pumpkin Spice Bacon.  I'll leave it up to the reader to decide if it really exists or if I made it up.
