Go Figure

So with most things you never know how much you'll miss it until you can't get it.
Take pumpkin for example. I usually really don't even like pumpkin, even at Thanksgiving I usually pass it on by. So of course when I actually need it I can't find it.
It makes sense then that I missed the whole hub-bub over the pumpkin shortage over the holidays. Who knew that the number 10 cans (think average can but on steroids - enough to feed Jon and Kate plus 8 and the Duggers) of pumpkin I have up at camp could have financed my trip to Vegas.
Well this can above represents the fruits of a forage into three different markets in the rain. As mentioned in an earlier post someone is having tummy trouble and we thought a little pumpkin would settle that in no time. I also needed some pumpkin to make frosty paws, after the 2nd store it became an obsession I was not going home without some. did I mention the rain?
If anyone needs some I have an extra can - 'cuz you'll never miss it until you need it.

Ooooh goodness! I haven't heard much about that since the holidays ended! When you work for a restaurant supply company, you hear all about the pumpkin shortage. Over. And over. And over! #10 cans! #10 cans! We had to ration them - some greedy customers tried to hoard them! No no! Not nice!

I do have extra cans in the pantry because of all the hoopla!
