Thanksgiving Foreplay

Found the two items above at Trader Joe's the other day. The pumpkin spread is creamy and mellow, redolent of warm spices; the cranberry-apple butter is bright and sassy. While each is yummy on its own, using them together with a little seasoning creates a little foretaste of Thanksgiving, not to mention the other face-stuffing holidays.

  Follow closely: This could go terribly wrong in inexperienced hands.  Spread a cracker (or toast, or a buttered English muffin) with the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Drizzle with some Cranberry Apple Butter.  Dust with poultry seasoning, preferably Bell's, or use a little crumbled dried sage.  Consume while being thankful that, unlike on that Thursday in November, there will only be a knife to wash.
