Follow Friday – Pumpkin


Throughout October, Follow Friday posts focus on blogs posting about things that are well October related.  The last three weeks the focus was horror,  Halloween and Canadian Thanksgiving.  Can you believe that today is the fourth Friday in October?   Thankfully, glorious October has five Fridays.

It seems that over the last several days no matter where I turn people are intent on reminding me that October is almost over.  There’s the clerk at my local we sell everything you could possibly want (or not want) grocery store stocking the seasonal aisles with you guessed it Christmas wrapping paper.  Or those annoying Facebook memes providing me with countdowns to Halloween, American Thanksgiving, the first icy day of winter and Christmas.  Really folks I have a calendar and I can do math thanks to receiving a quality public school education when teachers were respected and allowed to actually teach not just prepare students for standardized testing.  I digress, that is the subject of an entirely different post.

But seriously all I want to do is enjoy pumpkin season.  If one more person tells me how many days there are until Christmas before I give out my last treat on Halloween, I swear I will not be responsible if I go all Chucky or Freddy on them while screaming “For the love of the Great Pumpkin, let me enjoy pumpkin season in peace.”


Accordingly, I selected three blogs to feature in this week’s #FF post that are celebrating pumpkin season.

I love your sense of humor and am definitely going to try this recipe and the pumpkin ricotta white chocolate cookies.  I wish I had some ricotta in my refrigerator, I would be in my kitchen baking now.

My Comment:

Visiting your blog because of pumpkin recipes.  These cookies look wonderful.  I now have the task of finding a recipe to try out.  I did see a sweet potato version but the cookies don’t look as nice.  It is nice that your family continues your grandma’s tradition and is passing it on to the next generation.

I never heard of pumpkin chili until tonight.  Definitely going to try this out soon, maybe even this weekend as I may have all the ingredients on hand.  Thanks for sharing this and your other pumpkin recipes.
