You should all know that there are other animals who enjoy pumpkin as much as I do. Probably people, too.
You are probably less interested in the fact that my cooking of the last few weeks has pretty much been relegated to roasting pumpkin for pumpkin puree so I can make Thanksgiving-appropriate desserts...all. month. long.
That said, since I'm having fun...I wrote about it at GoGirl! (Wondering how to take pumpkin pie global? Guess no longer!) http://www.travelgogirl.com/blog/2013/11/21/pumpkin-pie-thanksgiving-abroad/
Needless to say, I'm a bit wistful about the fact I'll be missing my third stateside Thanksgiving in a row...but hey, on New Years Eve I'll touch down in the US as an Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. My parents tell me we can turn back the clock and do it all again.
Meanwhile, less than two weeks left as a Peace Corps Volunteer...then comes backpacking through Bolivia and Peru...and then, the US. Life is crazy sometimes, you know?
