Tell us about your favourite autumnal edible treat.
I keep reading this as “Autumnal Threats.”
So let’s go with that.
Autumn sucks hugely in regards to eating.
Oh sure, there is caramel apple cinnamon crumbles,
Or an ENTIRE PAGE of Pumpkin truffles
But my body was not designed for eating. Well, it was designed for eating. My body is just plain maternal, so it absorbs airborne calories, just in case my uterus kicks in again. I have been skating, running and skating again for the past year…and I still get winded after 3 miles.
At least I look fantastic on purple skates to counter-balance this. Geez.
When I think of the fruits of the Spirit, I think of self-control. Because it absolutely does not come naturally…it is definitely something I have to plan, organize, plant, grow, tend, water and see to it that it matures nicely in order to produce fruit. At all.
All these foods that are just going to lead to my obesity, my high blood pressure, my possible future with diabetes…is just a plain ol’ threat. And I already got 99 problems here in the laundry pile.
That’s right. I’m saying the Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins of Wonderfulness are each, individually, an Autumnal Threat.
My ability to make my world famous Split Pea Soup for dinner, and 4 out of 5 children cheer for it, means I have victory over the threat.

No joke: My treat is resisting.
