This is so random, but I've been totally obsessed with eating pumpkin this year.  I make pumkin-flavored things through the holidays, like pumpkin cheesecake or pumpkin cookies, but I always feel like there's not enough pumpkin flavor in there.  Plus, I prefer savory foods to sweet , so I feel like I'm eating foods that I don't even necessary want just to get the pumpkin flavor.  So I decided, well if I'm eating things for the pumpkin flavor, why don't I just eat pumpkin?  Duh.  And that's what I've been doing.  I've probably eaten about 10 cans of this so far this year.  No joke.  I just put it in a microwave safe bowl and heat it up until it's hot.  Then I put a pat of butter on top and eat it.  I think I like it so much because it is tasty and comforting, actually kind of reminds me of mashed potatoes, only a healthier version.  I also looked up the health benefits of pumpkin and it has many.  Just make sure you are buying that can that says "pure pumpkin" and not "pumpkin pie mix."  It's usually in the baking aisle.


  1. Or, alternatively, you could just buy a pumpkin. That's 100% pumpkin too.

  2. Good point! But if I bought a pumpkin, I'd have to cook it--and I'm lazy...

  3. Yeah, skinning a pumpkin is quite a workout... Shelley always makes me do it.
