Personally, I love pumpkin year-round, but of course, it’s extra delicious in the fall. Figuring out the correct amount of pumpkin to add to Paleo recipes can be very difficult. Because, let’s face it – cooking with Paleo “flours” is very different than “normal” cooking. You are going to need these Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipes because you can not use your old recipes that use regular wheat flour, it just won’t taste good at all.
Do you have pumpkin patches where you are? Every year I take my children and go down to a commercial farm about half an hour south of where we live. My kids ask all year when we are going to go. We start out by taking a “wagon” ride out to the pumpkin patch. But before we get a pumpkin, we play. They have a medium slide and a huge slide that you use potato sacks to sit on and slide down. Last year they added a track for these peddle bikes that are kind of like huge big wheels. I’m not sure what they are called, but they are so fun. Then there is a maze made out of huge apple crates. Just big enough to be fun, but not so big that it takes forever to get through.
When we’re all done playing, we go to the patch and pick out our favorite pumpkin. This takeS forever and each child has to pick out the one that’s perfect for them. Then we wait for a wagon ride back to the “barn.” At the barn they have homemade ice cream and tons of other goodies and a huge walk-in fridge/room with tons of apples, apple cider and other fresh produce. Just talking about it makes me want to go more than once this year! Problem is we always have so much fun we don’t want to come home and we don’t bring our jackets since it’s not cold when we leave, but we’re always cold and tired by the time we get home. Such good times though. Last year we went with my sister and her children and that made it even more fun.
Enough of this talking… let’s get cookin’!
