The other day Micah and I were in the nearby market getting a few vegetables and on the way out I saw some of these:
I was so excited!! Micah didn’t think it was a pumpkin, but once I cut that baby open, I knew for sure. It smelled so good! Maybe I was just feeling like a part of home was here or about to get here, with thanksgiving coming up. I love making and eating food with pumpkin in it, autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. The cooler weather, the colors of the leaves changing, the pumpkins…love it!
So after cooking the pumpkin and mixing it for a good 10 minutes (I don’t have a blender or food processor, thankfully there was a electric mixer in the apt.) it resembled a pretty good looking puree. After freezing some I also decided to make some pumpkin bread.
The first one kinda just disappeared. So I made another one. Whats next? Pumpkin pancakes for breakfast on Saturday!!!
