    I’ve never had pumpkin that wasn’t in a sweet dessert or drink. I need to broaden my horizons! I do love pumpkin seeds, both homemade and store bought.

  2. I’m one of those weird people who doesn’t like pumpkin pie (which delights my husband since that leaves more for him). I do have very fond memories of my mother baking the pumpkin seeds from what we had scooped out making our Halloween Jack-o’-lanterns. I couldn’t get enough of those salty, crunchy morsels.

    I love pumpkin soup, make 2 kinds of pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes, and of course, my biggest weakness, pumpkin scones.

    My gratitude for pumpkin extends to my dog. If he ever has stomach or bowel issues, a couple tablespoons in his food makes him all better.

    Lastly, my granddaughter Nikolah’s private nickname from me is “Punkin’ Pie.” I wrote her a song when she was 3:

    Punkin Pie, Punkin’ Pie!
    You’re the apple of my eye!
    Punkin’ Pie, Punkin’ Pie,
    Kiss me quick or I shall cry!
    Punkin’ Pie, Punkin’ Pie,
    Grandmama loves you.
    Punkin’ Pie, Miss Nikolah
    loves her grandmama too! Hey!

  4. Other than Thanksgiving Desert, I’ve never been much of a pumpkin eater. I don’t dislike it, but somehow I’ve just never gotten into eating it. Thanks to your post, I will definitely give it another try!

  5. I love pumpkin too, but it hasn’t been an easy love to come by. I never knew pumpkin until much later in my life and it didn’t appeal to me the way lemons did. Pumpkin pies just never look as good as lemon pies, but in the meantime I have learned to love this squash more and more. I don’t know if I’d like it feeling me up though……you gave me a great laugh, thanks.

    • A lemon pie is a beautiful thing. I’m glad your learning to love pumpkin, though; there’s room for both! I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Olivia. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  6. I had no idea that pumpkins were so good for us, WOW! Thank you Christie for linking up and co-hosting at the #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty. I shared your post on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Twitter. Ok, so now to answer your questions:

    What is your favorite way to eat (or drink) pumpkin? None, I don’t eat it or drink it

    Have you used pumpkins in non-food ways? How? Decorating for fall

    Where do you get your pumpkins–the store or a pumpkin patch? Or perhaps you grow your own? A store

  7. I’ve always loved the taste of pumpkin. I buy the canned puree and it’s always in my cupboard to use in chili, soups, muffins, breads and so on.
