Crush of the Month: All Things Pumpkin

August 28, 2010

Y’all. I effing love pumpkins.

I think they are gorgeous as a squash (I had to Wikipedia to find out what sort of food group pumpkin falls in), I like decorating with them, and I loooove eating/drinking pumpkin flavored things.

Something that has surprised me is that there is a plethora of pumpkin flavored options to eat in NYC during the summer. Maybe it’s just my seasonal bias/ignorance talking, but I always thought that pumpkins were a fall only squash and that there was really no other time to use them.

I am so wrong. And I love that.

Here is a list of pumpkiny things I have ingested in the past month or so:


Pumpkin Muffins
Pumpkin Cheesecake
Pumpkin & Shrimp Steamed Dumplings
Pumpkin & Raisin Pancakes (topped with sour cream….so. yummy.)
Pumpkin Spice Latté!!!!!!! (My fave drink of the cold weather months. Starbuck’s Caramel Apple Spice–randomly listed under the Kid’s Menu–runs a close second.)

I think that’s about it…but that’s still a lot of pumpkin. And now I want to go buy a bunch of pumpkin and just bake all day. In fact, I think I will. Wheee!!

    I think I had your pumpkin cookies last year. And they were delicious.

    This is good to know. I'll clearly need to either deliver or ship pumpkin cookies to you.And remember how good those pancake were?! OMG. And also remember how the guys refused to try them because of the perfect pairing of sour cream. Come on, guys.
