Pumpkin Pie Spice

November 19, 2010


You’re probably going to be loading up your cart at the grocery store with all kinds of Thanksgiving things this weekend.

Can you do me a big favor?  Don’t buy that stupid little jar labeled Pumpkin Pie Spice.  It’s annoying.  It’ll only get lost in the back of your spice cabinet until three years from now when you move and have to clean out your kitchen and find seven stupid little jars labeled Pumpkin Pie Spice.

I think you should make your own dang spice.  You probably already have every spice you need in your cabinet… in front of the forgotten little jars of Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Wanna do it?  Sweeeet.



Pumpkin Pie Spice is a combination of every yummy autumn spice in your cabinet:  cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice and nutmeg.

I can make the spice.  Can someone please turn this into a shampoo for me?  K…. Thanks.
