    Pumpkin Roundup #2 2018: Breakfast

    It’s time for another pumpkin roundup!! <insert applause and cheers>  Today’s roundup is all about breakfast.  Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, other than dessert.  Is dessert a meal of the day?  Well, for me it is. Anyways, I love breakfast.  My day is not complete without it.  It’s that source of fuel that helps me get started on my day.  So I definitely wanted to include breakfast in my roundup as I did before.

    Reunited With My Love Muffin

    Finally!!  My love muffin and I were back together again.  Oh, I don’t mean that love muffin.  Not a significant other.  But a muffin I love dearly, nonetheless. One of my favorite muffins is the Cinnamon muffin from my local HEB grocery store.  I could eat one almost everyday.  The muffin is fairly large, not puny at all.  And I love the texture of it (texture is important to me when it comes to food).  Very fluffy and soft.  It is loaded with cinnamon flavor because of the cinnamon chips.  And it has coarse sugar on top.  Sometimes they put more sugar than I like.   Well, why did I…
