It’s pumpkin time! I’m not usually a big pumpkin fan, except when I find them in pie form, but pumpkins popped up everywhere I looked this week–it being October and all–so I’m thinking the universe wants me to expand my horizons.
First, Wife ordered an amazing-smelling Thai Pumpkin Curry from our local Thai joint this week. It looked like vegetables swimming in a bright, fake, processed cheese sauce, but it smelled and tasted like vegan coconut curry heaven. I think I might try to copy the recipe, or maybe just order some for myself soon.
