Last night I had pumpkin for dinner.
PUMPKIN FOR DINNER!
I’m digitally shouting this statement, not because of pure pumpkin excitement (though making pumpkin & sage gnocchi for the first time is shout worthy!), but because I had pumpkin for dinner in August! This was a real pumpkin, from a local garden, not from a can. There it was, making its spherical, orange August debut while kids were heading back to school, pools were being drained, and I was reaching for a hoodie at night.
Though I am attempting to cling to August and hold to the last moments of summer ever so tightly, that first taste of pumpkin has me craving the comforts of a constantly warm oven. High on that list of craved comforts is fresh baked bread, so before too long, maybe I’ll be pulling one of these varieties from the warm oven…

Happy Summer to Fall!
