There a million-and-one reasons why I love my new city of Modiin, and last night’s festivities were just the icing on the cake.

We went to check out the Sukkot Carnival here in Modiin, and it was out of this world! There were acrobats, tightropes, and acts I cannot even explain, and to top it all off, it was free! Being outside late at night did remind me that fall is here, even though during the day it stills feels like summer here in Israel. To me that means pumpkin season, so I decided to make my beloved pumpkin muffins for Shabbat! Topped them off this time with pumpkin seeds roasted in brown sugar and cinnamon, and I mixed craisins directly into the batter to turn it up a notch!
