We have been full on embracing the new season this year and I have fell in love with a plethora of pumpkin recipes. The recipes I’ve made using canned pumpkin have been delightful, but I wanted to see if using fresh pumpkin would taste different or make things more difficult. I took the opportunity to take Elle to the pumpkin patch. So on our way home from a soccer game Saturday I spotted a sign for a pumpkin patch, and decided I would take her first thing Monday Morning . It was at a church cute and quaint just the right size for my little pumpkin to run around and play. She found some pumpkins she liked, I found some I liked and I was ready for some fresh pumpkin desserts and savory meals.
