Double Pumpkin

I realized, at the rate I was going, my pumpkin recipes were going to take me through December. If you've read very long, you know that's peppermint/hot chocolate season (#seasonaleater), so I've decided to start doubling up on the pumpkin fun.

Last week, I made a pumpkin crumb cake...

It was yummy but hard to taste the pumpkin. Tasted more like a really moist cinnamon roll. But, still, quite tasty!

Also, a black bean pumpkin soup...

Pretty tasty; only a couple of complaints. 1) My pal Debra made a better one a couple of weeks ago (more of a kick...I'll be trying that recipe soon)! 2) As I've gotten older, some things (like beans) stick more heavily with me, so I really had to limit the amount I ate. I wanted a big, warm bowl but just had to have a tiny one for lunch every day.

This weekend, it's time for the annual Great Pumpkin viewing tradition, so I'll try to come up with something special for that one!

  1. I've never thought of black bean pumpkin soup although I made a black bean sweet potato chili last week that was great.
