holiday season was triumphant
jins exhausted needs a break
no more breads or cookies
no more truffles or cake*

many things to post about
hundreds of pics to upload
few customers from hell
tales to be told

but my bodys beat
and my mind needs a rest
be back in a few weeks

*this in no way means I shan't eat all of the above while I vacation ;-)

Ahhhh..... the scents that waft from a pastry shoppe kitchen are numerous, varietal, heart stopping & occasionally, scentsual. "Scentsual miss jin?" you inquire. Yes. Oh yes. Very.

I received an email from a distinguished area gent not too long ago. He was placing an order & what I found most jinteresting was his closing sentence, "Looking forward to seeing those pumpkin scones...I'm in a pumpkin mood these days it seems (pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin grilled, all sounds good)." A tiny giggle escaped my lips.

Later that same day, I brought up the email with my very own Pumpkin loving gent who looked at me quizzically. I said, "You mean to tell me you don't know about Pumpkin?"

Do any of you know what Pumpkin means? I suppose I've known, ever since I was a wee legaljin, just what Pumpkin means, as I may have used it to my advantage on occasion. (Um, ok... maybe a bit more than on occasion. ;-)

Pumpkin is one of the top two most scentsual bouquets known to men. We're talking a wafting herbal Viagra here peeps. Don't believe me? Besides my word, which really should be sufficient *ahem*, there is documented research available for the nonbelievers amongst you. Click Here to go directly to a Google search of the most stimulating research available on Pumpkin + Men.

I'm not really much into savouring Pumpkin myjinself, but I have mastered the art of a wide variety of Pumpkin Desserts for the enticement enjoyment of men. Oh and ladies? That doesn't leave you out either... give it a try, it might just work... after all, you are women.

MMMmmm...... pumpkin.....
