Because Pumpkins



How can one use pumpkin? Let me count the ways.

In the last week, through no fault of my own, my house has been filled with the glorious aromas and tastes of

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin pies
Pumpkin flavored coffee
Pumpkin seeds (roasted)
Pumpkin pancakes
Pumpkin ice cream
Pumpkin candy
Pumpkin items that I cannot possibly remember

I feel rather monastic about it all, especially when I recall a deluge of pumpkins with which the Passionist Nuns of St. Joseph Monastery were once blessed. They posted about it here, and their Great Monastery Pumpkin Adventure is as "adventurous" today as when they first shared this story. 

November is a great time for a 'field trip,' so shall we drop in for a visit?  

I'll bring the pumpkin pie.

  1. Ha, ha! Funny skit! And I have to agree on the "no pumpkin jam". That sounds disgusting. But I DO like most things "pumpkin". I haven't been tempted to try the pumpkin coffee though.

    1. I didn't try the pumpkin coffee, but it made the house smell fantastic :)! I was not fond of the pumpkin ice cream. I made the remark that pumpkin pancakes (made by one of my kids) was like the exact taste of autumn. I got a funny look :).
