The Great Gourd

It's fall. It's definitely fall around here, I mean, I don't know about the rest of you.

The pumpkin is precious to this house. We grow them with love, the purchase of the year's pumpkin pie candle is greatly anticipated and it's warm spicy scent fills our house through November. We admire them in our decorating and in our culinary pursuits.

I love pumpkin. It's second in line after chocolate. I do not lie.

Last year, I took a little tour through all kinds of things you can do to celebrate the Great Gourd. Here are some links.

How about making some Velvety Pumpkin Soup?

Or what about a Pumpkin Vase for your table?

Make a Pumpkin Spice Pot for you, and a friend.

Or what about Pumpkin Spice Fudge, or Pumpkin Pancakes??

Whatever you do, don't forget to show some love the the fabulous orange orb.
