Its true, Its true I am a slave. I
To the delicous pumpkin that is
It is the time of year when they start artificially flavoring everything to taste like pumpkin. From muffins to cookies, pies and cakes then my other
addiction coffee and pumpkin flavored tea. Or at the Convince stores you have the pumpkin flavored capp. I even saw damn pumpkin Eggo waffles while I
was taking my daughter shopping. There is just so many choices If I had the money and the time I would eat them all. I would gain 50 lbs in 2 short
months. Yes it is true I love pumpkin. If i could I would tie off and inject that canned pumpkin pie filling Right INTO my VAINS.
Then the beer Pumpkin Flavored beer from hometown brews to national beer, Once again so many choices I would end up drunk 24/7 for the next month. I
was at the bar and saw pumpkin flavored vodka and a pumpkin spice rum. Where will this madness stop.
So now that I am done with this little artificially flavored rant I must ask. Do any of you eat pumpkin in the raw. It is not only very good, but very

One of my favorite things to do with raw pumpkins is just to take the outer skin off and throw the "Flesh" right on to a open fire. Roasted pumpkin
strips are extremely good to eat. Another simple thing to do is after gutting the pumpkin take the seeds and roast them or you can eat them raw. A
excellent source of Vitamin A and C along with non saturated fats and good amino acids.
So do you have any good actual pumpkin recipes to share. As I fear once November is over I will be going threw pumpkin withdrawal and might end up
looking something like this.
