One of the most wonderful things about blogging is that you get to virtually meet lots of great people. Years ago, I stumbled across a blog called Auntie Mims that talks about art and life, and on Wednesdays, the author discusses animals … hence the title of my post … Animal Wednesday.
I never thought I’d have an opportunity to mix the topic of my blog – food – with Mim’s Animal Wednesday theme until this past Sunday when I visited the Dallas Zoo with my family. Since our trip was on the heels of Halloween, there were pumpkins everywhere, including inside the animal’s habitats. As we were leaving the zoo, we saw this adorable Lemur happily munching on a pumpkin and enjoying the beautiful 75 degree Texas winter weather.
This little guy (or gal) is loving the pumpkin all natural style but it did make me think about ways I could cook with pumpkin. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, maybe it’s time to get creative with this orange vegetable … or is it a fruit?
I have made pumpkin muffins in the past that were delicious and a big hit with the kids. Plus, there’s always the standard pumpkin pie. But what are some other ways you can cook wth pumpkin? I’d love to hear your favorite pumpkin recipes.
Happy Animal Wednesday and Happy Kosher
