It has been pointed out to me, in a very light hearted way that my recent recipes have been based around pumpkin.
It is true, I am a little bit pumpkin obsessed at the moment. I just can’t seem to walk past the piles of them in the supermarket without one ‘accidentally’ falling into my basket and, in the case of the weekend just gone, several accidentally falling onto the floor too, thanks to my supreme effort at trying to pick the perfect gourd for our family. Alas, I digress.
Back to the humble pumpkin; what’s not to love? They are so versatile, cheap and such a vibrant shade –it makes a change to the more muted colours of most of my slow-cooked meals, to have something with such a bright hue on my plate…. Not to mention I *might* enjoy the opportunity to practice my pumpkin carving skills prior to chopping the whole thing up! Roll on Halloween!
