Autumnal Noms

I love this time of year, and most especially, I love pumpkins.

So as soon as there was a crisp in the air, I started getting a hankering for pumpkin inclusive items. In fact, my family has a rule called “Pumpkin Injunction” which states that if a menu has a pumpkin option, you MUST have the pumpkin option.

When it comes to cooking at home, though, I make an effort to try out old and new favorite pumpkin recipes alike. So far:

Roasted pumpkin and shallots with sage.
Wild Rice.
Spinach with balsamic vinaigrette and goat cheese.

Pumpkin muffins.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies.
Hot apple cider.

The dinner was an old favorite, and the muffins were something new–but definitely a keeper, and the cookies weren’t too shabby either.
