We found a case of three 29 oz cans of pumpkin at BJs. The great pumpkin disaster of 2009 has officially come to pass.
I'm down to one can--I've made four recipes of pumpkin muffins and two of pumpkin ziti. That's a lot of pumpkin.
Also, my kitchen walls are pumpkin colored. And we picked pumpkins last weekend. I think you have a blog you are obligated to post about pumpkins... it's mandatory.
But this ziti--its good. I used apple chicken sausage and don't think I could make it any other way. Also, I don't measure and ended putting in extra cayenne pepper and nutmeg. The energy required to clean measuring cups and spoons is not worth it. Everyone appreciates a little extra spice, right?
Finley missed me so much he couldn't bear to be put down. Which means the recipe is easy enough to make one-armed. Also, I did not shower or do my hair at all. I thought I would not wash it in honor of our friend Christopher Columbus. I bet his hair was greasy too.
