Growing up, one of my friends’ mothers made the most addictive puppy chow at Christmas. I mean, that stuff was so good and sugary. So naturally, I came home telling my mother all about it and asking her to make some. She gave me the strangest, sort of horrified look. Then, it hit me. . . . she thought I was talking about puppy chow – as in, dog food. I quickly explained that ‘No your daughter hasn’t developed a love for dog food.’
She was very relieved. Whether she was more relieved over the fact that she wouldn’t have to make a dish with dog food or that her daughter hadn’t been indulging in some extreme eating, I’m not sure.
That brings us to pumpkin spice puppy chow.
Full of my favorite fall things (i.e. cinnamon and spices), you know this is a favorite of mine.
