I Hate Pumpkin
Pumpkin is a jerk. Ten months a year, no where to be found. Two months a year, inescapable.
I hate pumpkin. Here are all the anti-pumpkin posts on the blog:
Pineapple Puts Pumpkin In Its Place
Happy National Anti-Pumpkin Day
How To Make A Pineapple Jack-O-Lantern
Read about Pumpkin. Hate Pumpkin.
Join the movement. Boycott Pumpkin.
Consider this your invite. I’m making a batch of Rachel Ray’s pumpkin soup.
I’m washing my various hairs that night.
I love pumpkin ale
Don’t try to slake your nutmeg lust with ale.
Totally on board. Pumpkin is disgusting, especially when people try to pretend it’s a fruit and put it in pies. It’s just one step further to sweet potato pies, and then all is lost.
Not to ruin a perfectly good pumpkin smashing time, but most commercially canned pumpkin is actually made with winter squash. Libby’s “100% pure pumpkin” is a Dickinson Field squash which cross-polinates with butternut squash. So haters of the Big Orange unite! And add squash to the list.
I made a pineapple jack-o-lantern this year to go with the tropical mariachi theme’d skeleton display. What I hate are hearts: http://www.pinterest.com/lrose917/maketheheartthingstop/
I used to hate pumpkin, until I found pumpkin soup… with sour cream… don’t get me started on potato soup with sourcream and bacon…anyway, I’m a born again pumpkiner. But then I’m also Australian, so we don’t have pumpkin forced down our throats for a whole month every year.
