Dessert and Coffee ~ Pumpkin Style!

After visiting The Fresh Market grocers several times, my pumpkin obsession is in full force.  Last night it was a pumpkin fest for dessert.  The Fresh Market pumpkin nut bread is fabulous and freezes well.  I got several at the Buy One - Get One sale and put them in the freezer!

The best pumpkin nut moist and full of pumpkin flavor!

This loaf won't last long!

Now my husband said "absolutely NOT" to this pumpkin flavored ice cream.  He said the picture on the front looks gross.  Well then, there's more for moi, right?  I loved it!

To round out dessert time, I served The Fresh Market's Pumpkin Spice coffee.  This stuff is fabulous and sometimes I just open the bag and sniff the grounds!!!

I added whipped cream {non fat, of course} and a bit of pumpkin spice sprinkles and it was wonderful!

Oh my...good thing I lost 10 pounds over the summer!

What is the proper way to eat pumpkin nut bread and ice cream???
If you were just served the pumpkin nut bread, you would use a fork.  Of course, if you were served only the ice cream, you would use a spoon.  When there is a dessert fork and spoon placed on the table, you know you are in for a real treat!!  So the pumpkin nut bread and ice cream would be eaten with a fork and a spoon.  The fork is held in the left hand {prongs down} and the spoon in the right.  The fork only serves as a pusher.  Then you eat with the spoon.  When using a dessert spoon, remember to take small portions and only eat from the front of the spoon.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope y'all have a fabulous fall weekend.  The clock is ticking for Miss Lori...the winner of a sterling silver monogrammed ring from Carolina Clover.  Lori has until Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. to contact me...tick, tick, tick!

Your pumpkin posts are powerful words of suggestion. I showed my Mom the picture of the pumpkin ice cream. She went wild. When my foot stops hurting, she wants me to go to the store and get her some. She never met an ice cream she didn't like. I really want a pumpkin spice latte the most. It tastes like I've died and gone to heaven.
