If you ask our kids what they've been eating these days, with a pout they will answer, "Pumpkin everything". Yes, I've managed to slip squash and pumpkin into everything. I'm loving me some pumpkin. They wish all their food wasn't orange. Kids prefer carving their pumpkins. It is that time of year. Get your Halloween pumpkins from the back of the wagon. But there are definitely more of the eating variety remaining. If you need any delicious recipes for cooking the nutrition-packed vegeatables, I have a broad range! Pumpkin cheesecake is a favourite.
