I wanted to start this post with something like I may have a pumpkin/ everything fall addiction, then I realized… Who I am kidding?!
I am definitely addicted and obsessed with pumpkin, Fall, and every single thing it brings with it! It’s beautiful, the foods in season are wonderful, and the temperature is perfect!
My pumpkin Love story.
Creamy Coconut curry pumpkin soup? What?!
Would you believe me if tell you I used to think pumpkin was only made for Cinderella carriage, and eating it was not something I could picture myself doing? There was only one kind of pumpkin for me until I moved to the States. It was the “Haitian” pumpkin. I was so shocked when I found out people actually put pumpkin in their coffee, desserts and other stuff. There were two ways for me to eat pumpkin until then: Pumpkin Soup and mashed! Pretty basic, right?
Now I am addicted to pumpkin everything! I even favor the colors! Don’t believe me?
Luckily I married someone who is as crazy as I am about Fall! He came home today to me making a gigantic pot of coconut curry pumpkin soup! Mind you, I was cooking in my underwear! TMI? Sorry!!!! ?
Well, turns out he got me some pumpkin on his way home. I just got myself a big batch from the country store the same morning. At this rate, I will be bleeding pumpkin very soon! ?
