What I Ate Wednesday… WITHOUT the Pumpkin

It may be hard to realize, but there are foods other than pumpkin to be excited about come Fall. I really do understand the appeal of the orange squash; however I know of at least one blogger out there who is probably getting a little tired of the pumpkin-all-the-time mindset.

Today I’m here to remind you that there are many other awesome Fall foods that can be enjoyed WITHOUT pumpkin.

I hope these recipes have opened all of your pumpkin-blind eyes who have been eating the vegetable like you will never see it again.

Of course I’m kidding… Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods, so don’t misinterpret this post as me bashing pumpkin. I LOVE the stuff.

Sometimes it’s just nice to have, you know, variety!
