Hopefully many of you still have a few of those little mini pumpkins still scattered about the house, left over from harvest and Halloween celebrations because Rebecca, one of the trio of sisters who write Roots and Wings Co, and I have some pretty cool ways to use them to light up your Thanksgiving table!

You absolutely can eat these little guys! They are delicious!

And they may just be the way to get your kids to try out winter squash!

Rebecca (Roots and Wings) and I are working together on a little project for November to make good use of any leftover mini pumpkins; but in the meantime, I thought it might be fun to share what my Sweetie and I have found out about eating them!

You see why I have ears and ears of Indian Corn laying around! I consider it eye candy! That blue one on the left is my absolute favorite.

I am crazy about Indian Corn!

Every year, in the fall, I end up buying more - even though I have bunches and bunches of it already at home. I just can't resist the stuff!

So - this year I decided to actually DO something with all those bags of Indian Corn my sweetie has so patiently hung from the garage rafters year after year. He never complains, but I know he is convinced I am nuts!
