I purchased some amazing blanket scarfs, my boots are out and in use, and this past weekend we went apple picking! The foliage in New England is really starting to shine in only the way it can in New England! So beautiful.ApplePicking2015_11

    1. I haven’t tried that so can’t guarantee, but I think since the pumpkin picks up a ton of flavor when it’s roasted it might change it a bit.

  1. Hi! I’m planning on making this tomorrow.

    I’m trying to figure out what to do with the cubed pumpkins- should I peel the outside skin before putting it in the pot or it will blend as it goes? Let me know! Thanks!
