For many of you IIC students, this is the first time you are experiencing October in the states. Have you noticed the abundance of pumpkin products in grocery stores and cafes? As you can see, many Americans go crazy for pumpkin! I’m no exception to the craze; some of my personal favorite pumpkin treats are pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin beer, and, of course, the classic pumpkin pie. Have you guys tried any pumpkin foods? What are some of your favorites?

I happened upon this useful article on all the pumpkin items at Trader Joe’s. Loads to try! Also I was browsing pinterest and there are many, many pumpkin recipes out there for anyone interested in cooking! So go on and treat yourself to some pumpkin goodness :)
