30 days of Happiness - Pumpkin

Tis the season for my favorite flavor--Pumpkin! I look forward to this every year, and for those that know me closely, I can get quite fanatical about it all. Pumpkin ice-cream. pumpkin fudge, pumpkin pie, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cakes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin WHATEVER--I will eat it with a huge smile on my face. My dear husband will bring me home a pumpkin shake every once in a while, as the most romantic gesture ever!
Definitely one of the reasons I've come to love the season of Autumn-for the wonderful flavor of that giant, orange squash. (fused with spices and sugar, of course)

Tonight we watched a funny movie and ate Pumpkin ice-cream. And I can honestly say-- It really made me happy. :)

Pumpkin zuchinnie chocolate chip cookies are delicious!! I love it when they come out with the girl scout cookie Samoa ice cream:)

Have you tried much butternut squash? I feel it is a cross between sweet potatoes and pumpkin. They sell HUGE ones at our farmers market for $1 and we are LOVING it. Steam, whip with butter and cinnamon and a little salt - delicious!

Anne, thanks so much for the Pumpkin Quinoa recipe! I am drooling just looking at it, and bookmarked it for later. (Maybe even later today:)))

And yes, Tami, butternut squash is a favorite. I love it steam-baked with butter and brown sugar.

Awww squash--I love it!
happy Pumpkin season !!
