Sigh. It is Thursday, and I have no pumpkin recipe. It's been a very long week at school, and it completely slipped my mind.
After an impromptu 11-mile treadmill run (what?! love those runs!), I spent the evening tidying up and cleaning our house with my Business Man's help. Now, why would we clean on a random Thursday night? We're having visitors this weekend!
So, in an effort to post something pumpkin-y today, I had the genius idea to go to Dairy Queen for pumpkin pie blizzards. (When do I ever not want to go to DQ?) And, I have to get my fix in because they close November 18 for the season.
So, I drove all the way to the DQ that is across town (because the one nearest to us already closed for the season) and ordered a pumpkin pie blizzard. Only to find out that they have run out of the pie crust pieces they use in the pumpkin pie blizzards. "Do you still want one without?" the nice server asked.
"Hmmm..." thought the girl who always orders her blizzards with extra pie crust. Probably not. Except my #2 blizzard choice is french silk pie... which has pie crust pieces, too! Something about those buttery shortbread pie pieces.
|Pumpkin pie, you are so good. Hopefully we will be reunited soon.|
|Tonight's Oreo-cookie dough concoction.|
And this, my friends, is probably why my most searched term to get to my blog is "dairy queen" or "dq blizzard". A whole blog post dedicated basically to soft serve? Yes, I am a blizzard-a-holic.
Question: What's your favorite blizzard? (I'm sure I've asked this before, haha...)
