Cast Iron Skillet Pumpkin Cornbread is moist, scrumptious and healthy. Serve it along side some soup or salad for dinner tonight.
It is pumpkin season! Woo hoo! I know for some of you, any time of year is time for pumpkin. For others, they will still think I am a tad early with the pumpkin. I’ve waited as long as I could, but am so excited pumpkin season is back. It is so healthy for you, I probably should sneak it into more food. It worked brilliantly in cornbread. Now, this cornbread does not have an “in your face” pumpkin flavor but a subtle one. What the pumpkin does do, is make this cornbread moist. Forget the dry cardboard cornbread, this one is moist without a lot of fat. Can I get an “Oh yah!”? That’s right, low-fat and moist cornbread with increased fiber and wonderful flavor. Grab a bowl of chili (I’ve got a new recipe coming up in about a week), and a slice of cornbread and celebrate Fall.
Bring on Fall. I am looking forward to our annual visit to the pumpkin festival and picking our pumpkins. There, of course, is Halloween, and I am thinking of hosting a scary Halloween dinner. I cannot wait for the cooler weather and our second annual rodeo. What a trip that was last year but such fun. My daughter is very much into horse riding, so we thought she would enjoy the rodeo. It was a blast. Neither my husband or I would be considered “country folk”, but we took to it like a fish in water. It was hilarious and exciting. What a new world opened up for us. We may become country folk yet.
With pumpkin cornbread, it doesn’t matter if you are country or city folk; northern or southern. Everyone will enjoy a slice. It will also be the base of my stuffing for Thanksgiving. Pumpkin Cornbread Stuffing, doesn’t it have a great sound to it. Don’t worry, I’m not going to overload you with pumpkin right away. The next recipe is another easy and quick weeknight meal, Pork Saltimbocca Marsala.
