I am really enjoying the start of fall. Yes, it has been raining just about everyday for the last week (I do live in Washington), but I have had a fire going in my fireplace, my favorite afghan and fleece jammies have been broken out, and the smell of pumpkin has been filling my kitchen.
I have no idea why I only cook with pumpkin in the fall. I mean canned pumpkin is available year round right? But I guess it is just that pumpkin and fall go hand in hand. It would seem a little strange to have pumpkin pie in the middle of the summer. Although far be it from me to judge. Lord knows I let my freak flag fly quite high!
