Pumpkin Shortage

26 Sep

Apparently we are experiencing a great pumpkin shortage here in the US.  I can’t say I’ve specifically noticed–but I have wanted pumpkin pancakes since May and haven’t been able to find a can since.

So what does a 38-week pregnant girl do when she needs pumpkin pancakes?  She has her awesome, incredible, loving, and generous husband make some.

A pumpkin vine has been growing behind our garage from our compost pile and has yielded a handful of cute pumpkins.  Today Mike picked one, roasted it, and pureed the flesh so that I can have pumpkin pancakes!  The man even roasted the seeds in it.  What a guy!

I guess we wont have a problem making pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving.  Thank you husband!
