Fall is really my favorite time of year. I love pumpkins. I love to cook with them and I love to decorate with them. I really think they are beautiful. I've even grown them!
One of my favorite things to do is drive around to the pumpkin patches the day AFTER Halloween. Usually any pumpkins left are free. I think that pumpkins and gourds are great decorations through Thanksgiving so I put them out for decorations. If they are still in good shape after Thanksgiving I bring them in, cut them up, bake them and scoop out the flesh for pumpkin recipes.
