Have you noticed the change of temperature and how shorter the days are? Yes, Autumn is here. Which means… it’s pumpkin season!!! So nothing like a good pumpkin pie to celebrate 🙂 This is my first pie of the season and a few more will follow for sure. It’s a favourite of ours and it’s a great way to eat that enormous and delicious pumpkin I bought a few days ago.
Pumpkin was one of those vegetables that I would not eat when I was a child. Yep, I just didn’t like it. And today I can’t think of a reason why not to eat pumpkin. My mum says says that I would reject anything with a sweet taste to it so pumpkin and sweet potatoes were not allowed in my dishes. Oh, how much I was missing. So nowadays I’m trying to compensate the time lost by eating both vegetables quite regularly 🙂
So, as you can guess, I would not touch all those nice pumpkin pies that my mum used to bake every year. Now, imagine how surprised my poor mum was when, a few years ago, I went home in October, and asked for her pumpkin pie recipe!!! She couldn’t believe her ears 🙂 After all the years not using pumpkin in the food because of me… I don’t know how and when I started eating it but it was not that long ago… and I’m glad as it’s a very healthy vegetable and makes delicious dishes both savory and sweet…
