A bit of pumpkin anyone?

I live in Australia. We don’t do Halloween here – although maybe some of the commercial aspects. Did you know that the turnip was originally a symbol of Halloween – but now it is the pumpkin – because of its size and ease of carving. You can read more about Halloween here.

Every day in the weeks leading up to Halloween I have found a few pumpkin related recipes and craft ideas in my Pinterest feed – so I thought I would have a bit of a pumpkin celebration post here – I love pumpkin (there are a couple of recipes here that I want to try – I tend to be more of a pumpkin savoury recipe sort of person – I love roast pumpkin – that is my fave!).

My husband loves pumpkin. I need to work on my pumpkin soup recipe as an alternative for all of the sweet pumpkin things out there!

Australia introduced me to pumpkins as food (aside from the annual pumpkin pie). I’d never heard of pumpkin in salads or savory dinner dishes. I love it! Good on ya, Oz!

Thanks for the round-up of pumpkin recipes. I love the taste of pumpkin and always stock up on the cans of puree duing the season so I can enjoy pumpkin all winter.
