All hail the pumpkin!
Even if you’re the person who only “kind of” likes pumpkin (who are you?!).
If that’s you, I’m making it my duty this season to convert you all to the wonders of pumpkin everything.
Pumpkin is my everything during fall, and after making an executive decision, it should be yours too.
Except soup. Pumpkin soup is not my everything.
I don’t think I can stand behind pumpkin soup. I mean, I’ve never tried it, so my non-support of pumpkin soup is completely unreliable, but I have a weird thing with pureed soups. They remind me too much of smoothies, but then they’re hot and non-fruity and I’m so thrown off I can’t handle it.
I find it best to avoid uncomfortable situations. Usually, I’m so caught off guard that I say something awkward and inappropriate and then we all feel awkward and uncomfortable.
I’m like Lorelai Gilmore. “I have to go sit in a closet or something.”
I’m pretty sure this is what you should be eating for breakfast.
