Let's have a talk about pumpkins
Pumpkin. Pumpkin never changes.
The Romans waged war to gather squash and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gourd and territory. Hitler shaped a butternut Germany into an economic superpower.
But pumpkin never changes.
Ah, October. Falling leaves, muddy streets and, of course, pumpkins. I used to hate pumpkins. My grandmother only ever had pickled pumpkins, self made from pumpkins she grew in her garden and it was absolutely disgusting. I avoided pumpkins for many years but lately I rediscovered this glorious vegetable, especially the butternut squash.
I just had a delicious butternut-cream soup for dinner followed by a butternut cupcake (which ended up sombrero-shaped for some reason). Once roasted you can do so many things with it. It's really easier than it seems. Dare to pumpkin.

I did not like pumpkin pie when I tried it. Roasting makes a lot of things taste better though.

My GF makes a delicious spicy pumpkin soup. It's a great ingredient for stews too.

I learned to love pumpkin a couple of years ago when my flatmate made a pumpkin soup topped with poppy seeds for the annual Halloween party we used to host back then. Just yesterday I ate some roasted (or maybe baked) pumpkin slices with a tasty dressing and had some as ingredient in a salad.
But it's more than just food. Jack O'lanterns are awesome, it's a shame you don't see them around where I live as often as you would in, say, the states. They aren't really spooky... well, maybe a bit. They glow in the dark. They burn from the inside while grinning at you. How awesome is that?
I love it if video game include JoLs or maybe even allow you to wear one. For example, you can make a Pumpkin Helmet in Divinity: Original Sin (recipe is any knife + pumkin, go figure). Then there is this character Mad King Thorn from the Guild Wars games. He's basically an incarnation of Halloween:

I love pumpkins. I guess it has something to do with being born in October and seeing them everywhere along with Halloween stuff. And come on..Halloween is just plain awesome. Anyway, yea..love 'em. I buy any kind of pumpkin/jackolantern thing I come across. When we bought black furniture we ended up painting the room orange. It's kind of funny because people always think I'm joking..
Anyway, love pumpkin pie..muffins..you name it! :)
