So what do you do with all those pumpkins? Snacks, baby. Whoot!
The nearby pumpkin festival has all the pumpkin snacks you could possibly imagine. And some you'd never come up with. Here are a few scenes...
The main street - with all the pumpkin snacks you could imagine...
Orange is the color of the day...
The pumpkin cream puffs are legendary..
And who can resist kettle corn?
Unless you are holding out for a funnel cake... We tracked down this same vendor from the county fair we went to. I think he thought we were stalking him but we just wanted another "buckeye" funnel cake. Fried dough with peanut butter and chocolate sauce, seriously.
But the best thing? Pumpkin burgers. I know...who would have guessed?
I found a recipe here for pumpkin burgers. But usually I usually just wing it. Make sloppy joes (yes, from scratch not from a can of Manwhich) and add pumpkin puree and pumpkin related spices, such as allspice or even pumpkin pie spice. I use a combination of allspice and cinnamon. You'd never guess, but its delicious.
Happy Thursday everyone! Now get out there and get some pumpkins and make some snacks!
