    . . . . canned pumpkin is back on the store shelves. It's been almost a year since I've seen any; bad weather ruined the crops.

    Great!

    There was a bad shortage last season...I couldn't make pumpkin scones.

    A crisis.

    I wasn't paying attention and didn't know there would be such a shortage. I had found a fantastic pumpkin cake recipe and searched high and low for the right sized pan (9" square). Finally found it, made the cake twice and . . . . boom, no more pumpkin.

    Guess what I'm baking today? :eusa_drool:
