Pumpkin Café au Lait

by Dinah Wulf

Halloween is just around the corner. When I was a kid one of my favorite desserts was roasted pumpkin with cream. In fact, I loved it so much and looked forward to it all year. It was upsetting to me when I found out that you could not eat jack-o’ lanterns!!! What a waste :(

“You didn’t tell me you were gonna kill it.”-Linus to Lucy as she takes the seeds out of the pumpkin before they carve it. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’

And if you’re looking for an alcohol free drink then skip the booze. It’s delicious as just a coffee drink.
