Recently, I’ve begun to notice all the pumpkins and sweet potatoes appearing everywhere. Trader Joes has white pumpkins, orange pumpkins, pie pumpkins and more for sale. Costco is selling 10 lb boxes of sweet potatoes, which are a seasonal good that they provide every year. So with the excitement, I jumped on the bandwagon and participated in my share of pumpkins and sweet potatoes.
With my pie pumpkin, I originally made a modified version of dinner in a pumpkin. But when I realized that the dish was a bit too bland for my taste, I modified it into pumpkin chocolate chili-a versatile and comforting fall dish. As for the sweet potatoes, I’ve done sweet potato fries, stews, soups, an addition to my mom/grandma’s curry..the list goes on.
This week, I’m looking forward to baking some pumpkin oat cookies (inspired by my co-worker who brought his homemade chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies this morning). Think…oats infused with pumpkin pie spice, pureed pumpkin, white chocolate chips, and walnuts. MmM I can’t wait..pictures to come!!
So what are YOUR Halloween plans? And have you been using ingredients from Fall?
