Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Speaking of pumpkin, do you guys ever think it’s a little weird that we freak out about all things pumpkin starting in the beginning of September, but then BAM! As soon as Halloween passes, it’s all peppermint and hot chocolate and Christmas music.  Like, what happened to continuing with pumpkin stuff until at least Thanksgiving?  I mean, that’s what pumpkin pies are for…I’m not going to eat a bunch of candy canes at a Thanksgiving feast!

Maybe it’s like a not-so-subtle reminder that you need to get your Christmas shopping done (if you do that sort of thing).  Actually, now that I think about it, it’s all marketing.  BUT STILL! Let me enjoy the greatest season of the year, especially because in Texas, that means that it’s not 100 degrees anymore and I can actually wear jeans once in a while. Here’s to doing my part to keep the pumpkin craze going into November. Cheers!
