The nightmare is over

Take the cans out from under your beds and sleep easy tonight: The Great Pumpkin Shortage is over. After reading this article, I have to say – gee, people, I like pumpkin bread OK, but I’m not obsessed with it. And here’s another heretical idea. I don’t serve pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. It’s apple at my table. Don’t even bring that pumpkin-flavored beer into my house, either. Would the Pilgrims have put pumpkin in their beer, if they’d had either pumpkin or beer? I think not.

    I’m with you, Debbie – pumpkins are for decoration only!

    That’s a shame! Do you not like squashes in general? I think they have great flavor and do well in pies, pasta, tarts, the whole she-bang.

    Oh, I like squash great. I don’t have anything against pumpkin, except that it’s done to excess. Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving has just never excited me. And it’s sooooooo obvious.
