National Pumpkin Festival
Yorkshire Pudding Day
National M&M Day
For some reason, this afternoon while driving home … my mind wondered … does anyone else do this? :-) In my mind’s journey, it focused on a recipe containing pumpkin. I had seen a partucular pumpkin recipe earlier in the month. I copied the link, sent it to my email to make sure I would not lose it. This morning, I printed the recipe for my “to make” file. This activity did not seem to satisfy the muse … “keep searching when you get home” …
So, I began pondering – just how did I find the website for the recipe. Was it from a blogging friend who posts recipes occasionally? Hmmm, the answer was no!
My searching continued for several additional minutes. Lo and behold, not only did I find the original site of said recipe, but in the continuation of searching, I discovered today is
National Pumpkin Pie Day.
Although, this recipe does not constitute (in the traditional way) pumpkin pie for National Pumpkin Pie Day - the common denominators are pumpkin and enough similar ingredients to qualify for a mid-October autumn treat.
I revisited the beautiful blog,
Willow Bird Baking and the target recipe.
After rereading Julie’s post, searching for previous references in my blog, and a few friends’ blogs, I thought …
“Self”, if none of our blogging friends have made references
to this awesome sounding recipe, then “we” must!!!
So … what recipe is this all about, you ask? Answer:
The photo layout and post with the recipe is delightful to the eye, and tempting to the taste buds!
I also discovered an additional pumpkin recipe, located under “Top Posts”. It is now included in the “must try” recipe file as well:
Please join me in celebrating the many gifts of Autumn, including the beautiful fruits and vegetables of the season. Bon Appétit !!
