Entries in Fall (1)



I've finally admitted it: it's fall.

I love fall. I just don't like what comes after it: winter. Last winter, I spent 3 out of 4 days whimpering every time I stepped a toe out of doors.

But I'm not here to be negative. I'm here to talk pumpkin! And there's nothing negative about pumpkin season – it happens to be my favorite season.

I'm going to try and get inventive with the vegetable. In a recipe-related way. I'm going to crack 'em open, scoop out the innards and contemplate new and exciting ways to eat pumpkin meat.

Got it? Good.

In the meantime, here are some John and Elana old school favorite pumpkin dishes:

The All-Useful Roasted Pumpkin Proceedings (with bonus pumpkin-head cartoons)

Pumpkin Bread Pudding Made Especially for Agent Mulder and Served in an Area-51-esque Diner

Pumpkin Pizza (Oh yes, you knew we had a pumpkin pizza) With Fried Sage and Toasted Pecans.

Delight! And don't forget to come back tomorrow when I will undoubtedly be wearing a pumpkin as a hat and marching around in a cloak all Headless Horseman style.

Consider yourself warned.
