I love October because it’s the start of pumpkins appearing in the stores and anticipation of Thanksgiving. Christmas might be my favorite holiday but Thanksgiving runs a close second. You can just smell it in the air, feel it in the hustle and bustle of shopping. I love picking up baking pumpkins wherever I see them and anticipate whatever dish they might make. Sometimes I puree pumpkin so I can have some through out the year, other times, they never make it to the freezer….
