The Great Pumpkin

Although Charlie Brown would argue with me on the grandness of this pumpkin, I would nevertheless want to take an image of it. While on a recent shoot (that had nothing to do with pumpkins and fruits of the autumn season) I saw this, big guy, tucked away in a vegetable garden.

I love the fall season, for many things, and one of them are pumpkins for sure. Weather they are decorated for Halloween or cut up and made into a soup. And on that note, I want to share with you this awesome recipe for pumpkin (it's actually a butternut squash) and potato cream soup I posted a while ago.

Here is the link



What are your favorite gifts of the fall season?

  3. forgot to answer your question. here in Florida what we like best about autumn is the break in humidity and heat from the long very hot summer and also a decrease in Bugs

  14. That is a different kind of pumpkin, Mersad. In my part of the USA, they are usually all orange. That is a decent size, but many here are bigger.

  15. That soup looks mighty good...and so fancy the swirling!
    What's my favorite part of the Autumn Season....well, Halloween of course, but I like everything pumpkin, the scents like a fireplace, pine, leaves that are getting musty on the damp ground, the colors...so much. A great season...

  17. I am coming back to write all these recipes down. I love Autumn's changes: the colors, the colder air, the sense of celebration of the different holidays and time with family and friends, pumpkin pie, pecan pie...well, just pie! :-)
