For almost all of my life—like up until a month ago—there were exactly two ways normal, well-adjusted people ingested pumpkin:  pumpkin pie and roasted/seasoned pumpkin seeds.

I like the latter. I can get through half a piece of the former in polite company, but would never choose it.

Now there is pumpkin beer, and pumpkin doughnuts, and pumpkin glaze on chicken. I noticed last week that pumpkin has infested our stock of Keurig cups.

Really, folks? Do you really like this? Or are you talking yourself into it?

  1. Boiled pumpkin, baked pumpkin, sauted pumpkin, pumpkin kabobs, pumpkin creole, pumpkin gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried….

  2. Bo, is this in response to my Pumpkin Snickerdoodle recipe that I posted last night? Are you one of those unAmericans that don’t like pumpkin? LOL I love pumpkin…. But only real. I make a pumpkin spice latte with real pumpkin, not artificially flavored coffee. That’s gross.

  3. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies…pumpkin bread…yum… : )

    Not so much in coffee though, mostly because that’s a waste of perfectly good pumpkin. ; )

  4. Constance, yes, it might have been an input. 🙂

    Amanda, now that you mention it, my first boss at Intergraph made killer pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

  5. Blech.

    (And pass the seeds, please.)
