One of the things you may not know about farm folks is that
we make do.
I've always dreamed of having a cute front porch display during the fall, complete with funky colored pumpkins and bundles of corn stalks and brightly colored ears of Indian corn.
So basically like my mom's front porch.
But we have dogs. Four dogs. And if last year is any indication, a pumpkin would last about ten minutes before it became pumpkin puree spread across the lawn.
Soooo . . . until our puppies quit teething, we make do with a close second: pumpkin granola and a house that smells like cinnamon.
It's almost the same-ish.
Granola lasts about a hot minute in a house with a farmer who likes to snack while he reads, so a double batch of granola is always a good idea.
Better still, I actually had all of the ingredients on hand . . . for once: oats, nuts, brown sugar, vanilla, even pumpkin and some caramel baking bits for good measure.
Better still, like a pumpkin pie.
We make do!
