  2. What a delicious combination! I am so behind on my pumpkin creations. My son plays football and we spend so much time at the field this time of year. However, last weekend was the last game and I’m ready to get back into the kitchen. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try. My kids are going to love it! Thanks so much for sharing it over at Let’s Get Real.
