Lovin Pumpkin

I am lovin me some pumpkin
How about you?
Deep, rich, amazingly bright orange color...
seeds that you can roast and sprinkle with cinnamon and salt...

There is so much you can do with pumpkins. It's no wonder it was a crop of choice by settlers.  The antioxidants it provides alone are worth the half of loaf of decadent pumpkin-chocolate chip bread I ate, no inhaled this past weekend!

Chocolate and pumpkin, must have it! Must give to thy neighbors!
