I much prefer Sweet Potato, but it is surely a matter of personal taste. I like pumpkin pretty much every way except pie. OTOH, Sweet Potato Pie is my favorite dessert in the world.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I really do love them both, almost equally. But I guess I would have to pick pumpkin with fresh whipped cream on top! I love PIE!

I like sweet potatoes any way I can get them and have never had a pumpkin dish that I found appealing.

I was never a huge pumpkin fan, I'd eat it but not often. I made a Sweet Potato this Thanksgiving, and I fell in love!
As my first description to my husband went......

It tastes like pumkin pie, only sweet potato-ish!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Pumpkins make good Jack-O-Lanterns....Sweet Potatoes make good pies

I raised a pumpkin patch for the kids one time, and DW started cooking them. Casserole type dish, sugar butter, spices etc. It got to where pumpkin was on the table 3 nights per week. I got very tired of pumpkin, to the point I told her, if she didn't stop it I was gonna file papers on her!

Nothing beats a well made pumpkin pie. For a change of pace, try butter on it instead of whipped cream..
