So I'm on Facebook last night and I see that one of my dear friends and faithful readers has found a can of pumpkin and is making pumpkin squares. And another sweetheart friend of mine sends me a message on Facebook telling me that another store in the area now has pumpkin.
Can I just tell you? . . . I am elated. Thanksgiving is saved!
Yet another national crisis has been averted thanks to the power of the blog.
Now, on to the winner. First let me say thanks to all of you who submitted recipes. Some of these are definitely going to be filed away for the great Thanksgiving feast, that's for sure.
But since we can only have one winner--yes, kids, that is how life works--and I am fickle and couldn't decide, I let my family weigh in on the decision. They are, after all, the ones who will get to eat the fruits of my pumpkin labor this weekend when I make the winning recipe.
Drumroll please. . . . The winner is . . .
Bridget of Every Day Faith! Bridget submitted a pumpkin chocolate chip muffin recipe that everyone around here agrees sounds absolutely divine. (We're suckers for the chocolate chips, so you might want to tuck that one away for future contests.)
So, Bridget, in honor of YOU, I'm going to make those yummy muffins this weekend and report back on Monday. Don't let me down, girl. And I'll be putting two cans of Organic Pumpkin in the mail to you. Enjoy!
And now, on to more important issues of the day, like whether Chicago gets the Olympic bid or not.
