While I'm not quite there, yet...it's not going to be overmuch longer before I'm ready for pumpkin pie, apple pie, mulled wine, buttered rum...
It's been a fantastic summer so far. We went to Punta Cana back in June, down the shore just last week, Belmar every saturday, bike riding..all the great things you can do in summer...but I'm just about ready for the season to change.
I love making pumpkin pie from milk pumpkins, they are kind of squat and dusty looking. I think they are also referred to as cheese pumpkins because they resemble a wheel of cheese. It makes for a much brighter coloured pie. Having said that, I find the Libby's canned pumpkin to be of superior quality and will happily use it when I don't have the time or inclination to deal with fresh pumpkin.
I'm a pumpkin junkie, so I imagine I'll be all over any pumpkin topics.
I think cool whip on pumpkin pie is sacrilege....nothing but fresh whipped cream..
and pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin coffee cake, and pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin soup, and pumpkin ravioli, and pumpkn gnocchi, and pumpkin creme brulee,
