It's pumpkin "go time!"

I am adventurous in many aspects of life, the one area my adventurous attitude does not apply is food. I do not venture happily into food unknowns. I like predictable foods and flavors. I know, I know, incredibly boring. When my husband and I started dating many moons ago, he got very excited when "pumpkin spice" latte season rolled around. I had never had one, but decided to try it since he was so excited about the coffee. One word for these lattes: delicious. Oh my goodness delicious. He was so right to love those lattes. He also loves pumpkin beer, which is really interesting to sample if you are a craft beer drinker.
Pumpkin flavored drinks, breads, and desserts are one of my favorite things about the fall season. I have recently consumed pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin pie...can one consume too much pumpkin? I am looking forward to a Thanksgiving feast in a couple weeks full of my favorite traditional Thanksgiving fare and lots and lots of pumpkin pie. What is your favorite pumpkin creation?


I have a pumpkin pie recipe I tried because my father in law is lactose intolerant. I am making it again this year for the neighborhood gathering!
