Tis the Season to Eat Pumpkin

One of my favorite things about fall is the the food.  Comfort food is at it’s peak during the holidays and one of my favorite multi-purpose produce item is especially in season: Pumpkin.  Pumpkin can be consumed in may delicious ways, all of which will rock your autumn.  Here are some of my favorites:

-Beer
Pumpkin beer can be a little gross if done improperly, but when it’s good, it’s oh so good.

-Pumpkin Curry
I likes it. You will too.  Here is a good recipe, or if you aren’t culinarily inclined, go to your fav Thai restaurant and hope for the best.

-Pumpkin Seeds
If you’re wondering what to do with the snotty, barfy innards of your carved pumpkins, throw those suckers in the oven and roast the shit out of them!  Ok, so it’s slighty more complicated, but not by much.  Here is a good looking recipe, but beware of pumpkin seed over consumption.  It wont’ end well.

-Cookies
My Baker Extraordinaire Roommate recently made a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.   After my first bite I declared that I wanted to live in that cookie and eat a little bit each day until I died.  That is still my wish.

-Pie
This is an oldie, but a goodie.  I haven’t found a recipe that I’m in love with more than my grandma’s, so I suggest bugging your mom for the family recipe until she gives in, or until she Googles one and sends it to you.  Sneaky moms.
