It's National Pumpkin Day
I heard on the radio this morning that is it National Pumpkin Day. I guess it makes sense it is in October and close to Halloween. If you are a food blogger or reader it has been national pumpkin day for weeks now. Pumpkin is everywhere. I am actually forcing my self to go into a pumpkin withdrawal because I have been using it so much. I do have one more pumpkin recipe to come and I will post in a few weeks. Just in time for American Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Do you think it's funny food has special days? Do we need a day to celebrate certain foods? There is nut day, pancake day, cupcake day, maple syrup and on and on. Who created all these days I wonder? How do you get a National food day made? It certainly gives us a reason to create dishes using those foods, but then you have to remember it is a special food day. They need to have special food day calenders. I think I would create Chocolate and Peanut Butter day - a day to celebrate the mixture together.
What food day would you create?
Here a few of my pumpkin desserts if you have a craving to make something today.
