It's fallllllllll. With a million "L's" - my favorite time of year!
It goes without saying that this is the time of year for pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread.... well, pumpkin anything. But just to set the record straight, I am not a big fan of the ubiquitous "pumpkin spice" lattes and coffees that some people anxiously wait all year for - they don't taste like pumpkin (but then, why should they, they don't actually have pumpkin in them) and they leave a fake, odd aftertaste in my mouth.
Call me a purist, but I like my pumpkin goodies to actually taste like... pumpkin.
So yesterday afternoon, when I was enjoying an unusually warm 70 degree October day and was wishing for something (anything, really) pumpkin-y and delicious, I decided I would make pumpkin ice cream.
