Who says we don’t have seasons in California? Exhibit A: It has been in the 30s for my last 3 early morning runs. I have needed to wear running tights and long sleeves to cope. (Note the lack of shorts!)
Exhibit B: Here are some trees on the street where I live doing something amazing, they are changing color. I don’t think I need further evidence fall is falling here in Claremont.

Raking leaves, late morning runs, teaching vinyasa flow and taking restorative yoga class, early afternoon hikes and bike rides; my fall break has been sublime. We enjoyed a snowflake filled Thanksgiving Day with the Jackson family in Big Bear.

Eyeball of hillside dragon awakening from slumber, alien space ship taking flight, spectral entity???... I haven't a clue!

I always feel like the days surrounding Thanksgiving are not complete unless you are eating pumpkin pie or something similar for breakfast. I made this same crustless Paleoish pumpkin pie for breakfast last year around this time. This year I cut the sugar even more and added an egg to help it firm up in the oven. After eating this for breakfast for the past week, I think I’ve gotten my pumpkin fix for the fall. Any ideas for what I should eat for breakfast as we start to welcome winter?

1 can pumpkin puree (15-16 oz)
