First the up: pumpkin spice cream cheese is surprisingly delicious.

Then the down: I had a hankering for pumpkin bread so I got a mix at Freddy’s plus pumpkin puree and mixed it all up and put it in the oven. Just as I was enjoying a sneaky lick of the batter, I glanced at the box and realized that I had managed to pick up the gluten-filled version as opposed to the gluten-free one next to it on the store shelf.

So tonight I am sick, and I didn’t even get the pumpkin bread I was craving.
