During my grocery trip, I noticed how HEB and Walmart are selling pumpkin galore for so cheap. Even other squashes are so affordable and bountiful. Then, I went to Whole Foods. The squashes started at $3 and Pumpkins from $3.99.
I think I am buying different squashes everytime I visit a store in the last week--acorn, butternut, different sizes of pumpkins. The squashes are seasonal, local, aromatic, vibrant in color and Prana.
For now, I have decorated them around the house.
How else do I use the bounty available for 3.99 at whole foods this month? (It is cheaper or equivalent to HEB. Thanks, Amazon!)
We bake pumpkin pies; we make pumpkin cupcakes and muffins. We make pumpkin soups. But, that is indeed how pumpkin is used.
We can use pumpkin in so many ways. I will be cooking pumpkin and taking some photos in the next month.
