Wordless Wednesday: In which I am ambivalent about pumpkins

I am always so torn when I see pumpkins on display. On the one hand, so lovely. On the other, whenever I see them, I can’t help but think of all the pumpkin seeds that aren’t being roasted and the pumpkin pies that aren’t being eaten. And now that I know about it, all the Pumpkin French Toast that isn’t being baked.

Mmmm… Pumpkin French Toast. You know the best part about Pumpkin French Toast?

I’m the only member of my family who will even consider eating it. Breakfast for a week!

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    pumpkin french toast? that recipe is for pumpkin bread pudding! calling it french toast just keeps the chef from feeling guilty for having dessert for breakfast 🙂

    Reminds me a little of the fall atrium display at the Bellagio casino. Pretty cool.
