inspiration list: october 2018
If we were sitting across the table, here is some of the stuff we might talk about this month.

It’s still fall, so it’s still favorite pumpkin pie season. (I think I’m on seven this season, not ashamed!) One fun variation I’ve tried and found worth noting is using a rectangular tart pan in lieu of a pie plate. Everything about the recipe stays the same, but when you place the pan in the oven, be sure to set a rimmed baking sheet on the rack below it, for catching spills. Also, turning on the oven vent halfway through is definitely recommended.

Speaking of pumpkin, if you want a gluten-free pumpkin doughnut option that is baked and not fried, this recipe from Heartbeet Kitchen checks all your boxes. It’s on my to-make list soon.

You may not find mustard yellow to be the dream color I do, but here are some recent finds, nonetheless: this hooded cargo jacket, this pretty twine, this washed linen tote, this linen tea towel and this linen bread bag.

On the menu tonight: sourdough deep dish pizza. My toddler’s already asking to help with the cheese.
