Breaking News!!!!

Okay, so everyone may not agree with me here, but I think what I'm about to share is Breaking News. I'm frankly amazed that Charlie Gibson or Katie Couric hasn't broken into regular scheduled programming to alert us all to this Breaking News, which leads me to believe that many people may not find it as horrifying as I do.

Are you sitting down?

Ready?

There is a pumpkin shortage! A pumpkin shortage at Thanksgiving! Seriously!

I went to Super Target to purchase this...


I was contemplating making Paula Deen's pumpkin cake. You see, this time of the year I'm all about anything pumpkin... pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin milkshakes, pumpkin smelling hand soap, pumpkin candles... I think you get the picture.

Anyway, I was going to make a pumpkin cake and needed 15 oz. of canned pumpkin. I found nothing but an empty shelf and a note saying that due to bad weather and growing conditions this year, there was going to be shortage of pumpkin through the holidays. Which brings me back to the question, Isn't a shortage of pumpkin and thus no Pumpkin Pie a national crisis? I bet if they had ran out of hot dogs at the World Series we would have been hearing about it.

I made a stop by Albertsons and bought the last cans on the shelf. I wish they had had more. I was contemplating buying it all and putting it up for sale on E-bay. I bet I could have paid for Christmas!

So, since Charlie and Katie are dropping the ball on this one, I wanted to let you know about the shortage and that you should start looking for your canned pumpkin right now. If they are already running out at stores can you imagine the situation as we get closer to Thanksgiving?

Wow, I better get to the store. I had no idea. Thanks for alerting me. This would have been a very hard lesson to learn on the day before Thanksgiving.

Dude, I love Pumpkin. I'm off to the store first thing to find me some. Thanks for keeping me updated!
