Friday Fave

I'm not going to do this every week. I won't even schedule it. It will just hit you out of the blue--BAM!--a Friday Fave. Every once in awhile, I'll note a favorite something-or-other. Because it makes me sad to think that some of you might have missed this particular thing. Whatver it is.

Today, the fave is


I know ... big deal. It's an orange vegetable. Or fruit. (I never get that right. If a fruit has a seed, aren't most things fruits and not veggies? But I digress.) But the pumpkin has a flavor that just sends me. (Don't know that expression? This is it.) Imagine a world without

pumpkin muffins
pumpkin pie

creamy pumpkin-curry soup (yes, it really IS good)*
Ben & Jerry's Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream
pumpkin-spice latte 
DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard
pumpkin bread
pumpkin jelly roll filled with cream cheese

They all make me swoon. In fact, whoever first married the pumpkin with cream cheese should be knighted. And given a big chunk of feudal lands. Maybe a nice house like this one.

Thank you, pumpkin cooks. I love you all.

*I happen to make a kick-butt pumpkin-curry soup. I'll send you the recipe if you want.
