Pumpkins are awesome. This is the time of year we celebrate the pumpkin- we cut them up and light them at Halloween, and we make them into Thanksgiving pies a couple of weeks later (which sort of makes me think "celebrate" isn't the right word, but that's not the point). I have to wonder, what about other vegetables? And fruit? Why have none of them been considered as viable jack o' lanterns or seasonal pie fillings in fall? Tonight I gave the other fruits a chance and made jack o' lanterns out of an apple, an orange, a banana, a kiwi and a yellow pepper. They seemed happy to get the chance to make a rare autumn appearance, so I don't have the heart to tell them that the world will probably stick to pumpkins.
Later we had fruit salad with dinner.
