Hey, Pumpkin!

Lots of pumpkin things floating around these days!  
Really wonderful looking recipes.  
 (although nothing looks as wonderful as that sweet girl)

So you know, I started wondering - what's in pumpkins?  
 Vitamins?  Minerals?  
So here's what I found, plus a roundup of some delicious and healthy recipes!
Pumpkins contain a lot of vitamin A (the orange color is a big hint - think carrots)
They are full of fiber
low in calories (49 in a cup)
also contain vitamin C and potassium
and pumpkins are a fruit.  Did you know that?  I didn't.
So go ahead and try some pumpkin tonight!


Happy cooking, and hope you have a lovely fall day!
