A Halloween Coronation

In a simple yet tasteful coronation ceremony earlier today, Pumpkin was crowned king. In a touching and wisely brief speech, King Pumpkin pledged his desire to carve a role in history as a just and yummy ruler.

If your pumpkin is not royalty, you can use it to make a Persianized pumpkin pie cafe latte, or, a Persian pumpkin Halloween kookoo. Yum!

    Aah at last. Pumpkin=fall/ fall=pumpkin love them both. In soups, pasta, salad, bread, khorosht, sweets, & so on. It is so versatile. For me pumpkin is like tomato in the summer time that can be used in almost everything. Don’t you agree?

    You know, when you say stuff like that, you make me want to be pushy and ask you to share one of your favorite pumpkin recipes. Pretty please with sugared pumpkin porridge on top? 😉 xx
