I think I’ve fallen in love. With pumpkin that is. Over the past month I’ve made quite a few pumpkin dishes. I wish they were around all year. Baking with fresh pumpkin is the best.
I made some simple pumpkin cookies. Had a huge mishap with pumpkin bread though; same exact thing happened last year: I forget to shuck the seeds before mixing them in. As Alex said: I don’t think that recipe is for me. I did a different cookie batch and added in oatmeal; super tasty. And last night I did an apple butter and fresh pumpkin pie. Yum! The apple butter gave is a nice sweetness. Over Thanksgiving Alex’s sister made a pork and pumpkin stew which was amazing! I want to try pumpkin and sage ravioli next.
Since the days are shorter now and the grey starts to set in around 3pm, I’ve enjoyed baking more and getting use out of my tangerine KitchenAid! Alex is pretty lucky! Haha!
