Trivia in the Kitchen, Number Sixty-One!

Happy Halloween!  In case you didn’t know, pumpkin is actually a fruit, NOT a vegetable.  And I would hazard to guess that pumpkin pie is the most popular and frequent way to prepare this fruit.  Pumpkins belong to the family Cucurbitaceae, which includes cucumbers, melons, squash, and gourds.  Here are some pumpkin links to help you plan your next menu (if you wish to include pumpkin) — and, due to the fact that there may be a shortage of canned pumpkin this year, I would not wait until the last minute to pick up enough to get you through the holidays.
