Welcome to part two of my Blog series called "Fall can be Fabulous!" This week it's all about PUMPKINS!
Fall is such a colorful time of year, a wonderful feast for the senses with the beautiful foliage, gorgeous red apples, and of course, PUMPKINS!
DESTINATION: MILFORD NH PUMPKIN FESTIVAL

RECIPE: BAKED STUFFED PUMPKINS
This recipe is the answer to what to have for a Fall dinner party. Delicious and the presentation is wonderful.
If you search online you can actually find lots of stuffed pumpkin recipes, I like this one because it has sausage, apples and cranberries, which are great together.
This recipe is unique and you have to try it!

CRAFT: PRECIOUS PUMPKINS!
There are so many creative ways to decorate pumpkins, and there are so many varieties of pumpkins! My personal favorite is the white pumpkin but check out these crafty pumpkins below. Hey if you decorate your own, please comment and send me a pic, I'll post it!
Click the photos for the link to each one! Each link has many more pumpkins to choose from. Happy Precious Pumpkin Decorating!
As you can see by the pictures above, pumpkins come in many different varieties, shapes and sizes. You should really try using the more unique varieties, , like the white pumpkin (my fave) or the Cinderella pumpkin, or even green pumpkins. Pumpkins are great for décor, eating, stuffing, carving, chucking (in contests) and are easy to grow in your own backyard too!
