I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cake, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin custard... but I really don't eat pumpkin very often. I might make pumpkin pancakes and/or waffles sometime this fall, haven't tried that yet. I think burrito is going to a pumpkin patch tomorrow. My chickens have already eaten a pumpkin. Every year I lurk around the webs looking at jackolanterns. Remember when Strong Bad was a thing?
I'm partial to Libby's pumpkin. Don't know if you remember the great pumpkin shortage. I saw where one ebay bid from a chef outside the U.S. went over $20 a can. The shortage lasted a couple of years and set a precedent for pre-stocking that still shows up here and there when I look around the webs. Libby's has over 96,000 likes on their pumpkin facebook page and have put their ultimate pumpkin recipe collection on pinterest.
I'm one of those weirdo foodies who has been reading recipes since 7 years old and can't help obsessing over food history, so I find sites like this one. Click the pic.
One of these days I might try making a pumpkin custard right in the shell or try pumpkin spice bacon, but even better (maybe?) might be the bacon flavored pumpkin spiced coffee.
Why not go for the gusto with a pumpkin spice burger? That page is truly awesome, I'm not even going to try to put the picture here.
I've gotta run, but you can stick around and learn how to make super awesome jackolanterns if you like.
