Hiiii! It’s me. It’s Monday. Let’s kick it.

 

 

 

 

Remember once upon a time during the summer when I got cucumbers stuck in my sweet tea?

 

Sweet Tea Pickles

 

 

Yeah, it happened again. Except this time it was Autumn and pumpkin-mania had commenced. I wish it was Wizamania and I was singing along to every song watching Wicked on Broadway again. Any other Wicked obsessed peeps out there?

 

Again, I found a way to make a seasonal spin on my second favorite food to eat out a jar. PICKLES.

I have been meaning to try these out ever since I went to a pickle festival at some point back in college. There was a parade, free pickles, and lots of people you think would be at a pickle festival. My friends and I may have been one of the few there with a full set of teeth. All the more entertaining.

 

But they also had some local pickle producers with free samples, which one included a cinnamon spice pickle to try.

I was sold. Anyone who adds cinnamon to as many obscure foods as I do is a winner in my book.

And with an abundance of garden cucumbers and a small window to fit everything and anything with pumpkin love, I had my chance. Sweet. Tangy. And full of pure pumpkin spice pickle joy.

Now what do you eat with pumpkin spice pickles? You mean there’s more ways to eat a pickle besides straight out of the jar? Something new everyday folks.

 

Here’s some I thought would be good. I can’t make any claims on their success. I eat them out of the jar.

 

  • On a roasted turkey sandwich with honey mustard
  • In a roasted root veggie wrap with dried cranberries
  • On a turkey or veggie burger with melted Gouda cheese
  • In a peanut butter sandwich (if you’re adventurous!)

 

…maybe that last one only sounds good to me…and those who are preggers.

 

 

Make it a great day!

What’s your favorite thing to eat with pickles?

Have you ever been to a food festival?
