It’s that time of year. Lets talk about Pumpkins.

I just made some Pumpkin Ice cream for work, There is Pumpkin soup on the menu too….and I I feel pretty bad for admitting it….but as we are all amongst friends I know you won’t hold it against me.

I don’t like it

There I said it.

I love looking at Pumpkins, carved or un carved.

This year I’ve bought some more Halloween decorations, to get in the spirit of things.

Reading Blogs I love seeing you all going skipping off to the Pumpkin Patch for the annual choosing of the perfect one for you. (We don’t do that over here, we go and buy them from the supermarket. Booo.) I love the thought of Pumpkin flavoured and all things Halloweeny. 

But, the reality is…..I just don’t like the flavour.


Does anyone like the flavour?

Do you carve your Pumpkins?

Do you decorate and/or send Halloween related mail?

Answers on a postcard…….or the comments section

What are you up to this weekend? (carving pumpkins?) I have lots of work to do but I also have a ton of mail to catch up on, and a swap parcel to create (yey!)



  1. I actually love pumpkin pies. I've never carved a pumpkin though. =)

  2. I love pumpkin! Especially carving them then making soup and roasting the seeds

  3. not sure about pumpkin ice-cream, but i am a pumpkin fan - soup, roasted.... yum yum. :)

  4. Pumpkins (in their natural state) are cute to look at. Anything else pumpkin related, i pretty much hate.

  5. and it's weird to me that everyone else seems to obsess over pumpkin spice this and that! hahaha! i must've missed something...

  6. I love the taste of pumpkin. The pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks is my favourite (I may have mentioned it on my blog today)! I'm also a fan of pumpkin & cinnamon French toast.

  7. I'm not a pumpkin fan, but I love the artwork :).

  8. Oh wow... pumpkin ice cream ?!

  9. I feel the exact same way as Sarah! if ever offered pumpkin pie, I ask for the smallest sliver, and prefer the crust to the filling :) and... I've never carved a pumpkin! Not even sure I realized that until just now...
    Cheers to you and this weekend! May your heart be filled with a wonderful warmth!

  10. My favourite Vegetable ever but I must admit I have never carved one before.

  11. Oh, I love pumpkins!! And anything with pumpkins in it... especially pumpkin loaf :D

  12. i would love to go and choses one from a huge field like the americans do! We shall buy one to carve but I have never really made anything with them.


  13. i never craved a pumpkin but i really like them!

    jos xx

  14. love pumpkin! definitely caught this bug, and will be making pumpkin cheesecake soon
    love kat

  15. I'm not a big pumpkin flavor fan either! Especially the coffee. YUCK! I can eat pumpkin cupcakes and such, as long as they have icing!!

  16. I'm so glad you love Betelgeuse too haha :) And yes, I have a naturally 'mad' face I guess so if I don't go out of my way to look pleasant I just look angry. It's so frustrating!

  17. I actually love pumpkin soups, but I'm always too lazy to make it by myself... Apart from that I haven't tried many pumpkin things, it's just not that popular here in Germany. Starbucks doesn't even offer Pumpkin Spice Latte here. But actually, I do want to carve a pumpkin this fall, I want to try some things I've seen on pinterest.

    That carved pumpkin with Tinkerbell looks adorable, but I bet I'm not able to manage that one.

    Here's to a happy Sunday. Xo.

  18. Actually, I have no idea what pumpkins taste like. I live in Germany and pumpkins aren't that popular over here.
    I'd really love to try a pumpkin spice latte, but you can't get them at Starbucks over here. So sad.

  19. Mmm... I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins. Oh and pumpkin bread! Sounds like I'd like the ice cream too.

  20. As you already know from my last post, I LOVE pumpkin :) Your comment made me laugh :) I love this time of the year because of all the pumpkin yumminess! :)

  21. LOVE pumpkin. love pumpkin everything, especially pie. this year we went to the pummpking patch (more for the kids), but i'd much rather get them at the supermarket...or even walmart, lol!

    What's the next line? Help write the story!

  22. pumpkins...i love to look at them. it's actually fun to carve them (though they last like 2 days). i think my fave though is pumpkin pie. i bet your pumpkin ice cream was pretty amazing too!

  23. i loove pumking soup!!! ;)

  24. I'm allergic to pumpkin :/

    But before I found that out and did eat them, I used to like pumpkin soup (my Mum's recipe only ... which was filled with potato and cheese too, haha). Apart from that, not a fan.
