Pumpkin Smoothies

Today is the first day of fall.  (By my calendar.)  I would like to say the Texas summer heat will be missed but . . .  not really.

So, someone told me I could cure my writer’s block by just writing whatever comes to mind.  I’m going to give it a try.

Hmmm.

I had a pumpkin smoothie yesterday.  Yes, a pumpkin smoothie.  It sounded exotic and seasonally appropriate, so I thought “why not?”  Well, now I know why not.  It was horrendous, and trust me, that’s not a word I use lightly when describing liquid food.  But I was in the mood for some self-punishment so I finished it anyway.

Which brings me to my main point.  Who decided that pumpkins were edible in the first place??  Apparently they were very hungry.  Anything that scowls at you should not end up in a pie.  And certainly not in a smoothie.

Not to mention, pumpkins are a seasonal decoration.  They have no place in a blender.   You wouldn’t drink a Christmas tree smoothie would you?

Okay.  I think it worked.  Writer’s block is gone.

In unrelated news, I am thinking about buying a new laptop.  Any suggestions??

  1. I loved pumkin pie as a child.  As an adult now, I don’t seem to care for it as much as I used to.  I think it’s the pie crust.  I don’t care for pie crust very much but I like the filling much better!  Pumkin seeds are tastey too.  I have no idea why it is so appealing but I have found it to be so.  As much as I enjoy the smell of a fresh pine tree around Christmas time, I don’t think I’d like to eat one.A new laptop?  I got a compaq a few years ago, it’s very nice, Windows 7 will make you feel slightly lost though.

  2. I don’t think I will try a pumpkin smoothie, but I do like pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread. AMAZING!  I would try a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, but I don’t have high expectations.  Maybe its just drinking a pumpkin that is odd?  You know in November we will probably have pumpkin Ice Cream at Coldstone.  🙂  If you want to experiment again.  I like pumpkin and I wasn’t a big fan.   So.  I got a Dell, you know.  It’s pretty awesome.  My sister has a new mac and it is way more awesome.  It was also quite a few hundred dollars more.   I think any new laptop is sufficient, seeing as how it is new.  Leah K.

  3. @korean_angel214 – I thought pumpkin seeds were for planting, not for eating.  Have you been shopping for food in the home & garden section again?  j/k.  I prefer to stick with sunflower seeds myself.@leahKtutu – If you think those are good, you should try pumpkin cheesecake (you read that correctly) at Olive Garden.  Heavenly!@frostingjay – Haha you’re guess is as good as mine.  Thanks for the kind wishes, I hope you are doing well too.   :  )@mozeik – That pretty much sums it up.Sorry for the lateness of my response everyone!  But hey, at least it’s still fall.  I’ve done worse.
