pumpkin-puree-5

Man, October 2013 was a crazy month of pumpkin love. Bloggers churned out those pumpkin recipes like there was no tomorrow and it all culminated in a Halloween frenzy of spooky pumpkin goodness. I don’t know why, but I feel like the blogosphere hit a 1 week lull after Halloween, like everyone was on this amazing sugar high and then just crashed once the porch lights turned off on October 31st.

But now we are all gearing up for Thanksgiving and we wearily turn back to the pumpkins that seemed so fresh and exciting a mere week ago. But come on people! Halloween was like the prep race you run a month before the marathon. The crazy sprint is over, but now we’re trucking steadily on to Thanksgiving and I’m not giving up on those pumpkin recipes yet. So, to reset everyone’s creative juices, here’s a round up of Peaches, Please pumpkin recipes. Thanksgiving is only three weeks away, so come on. Let’s do this.
