Dear pumpkin spoon bread,

Pumpkin spoon bread from Bon Appetit

Pumpkin spoon bread from Bon Appetit

It’s November aka pumpkin season. I went out on a limb and tried my hand at this pumpkin spoon bread. It was weirdly good. I guess I anticipated more sweetness – for some weird reason – but the spices are a really nice complement to mulled wine or hot apple cider.

Thanks pumpkin spoon bread! Next time, I’m taking you to a Thanksgiving feast.
