Easy Pumpkin Recipe

The Great Pumpkin Poutluck Recipe

I believe in The Great Pumpkin.

I really do. Because it came to my apartment last night and produced for Breanne and I this Great Pumpkin Potluck dish on the eve of Halloween.

Great, because it comes from The Great Pumpkin. And also just because it is literally, yes, you guessed it… great.

But before you get cooking and summon The Great Pumpkin into your own kitchen, a few fun facts!

  • Linus was the only Peanut who believed in The Great Pumpkin. (I support you Linus. I believe!)
  • According to Linus, The Great Pumpkin only rises from the most sincere pumpkin patch. (Now what exactly makes a pumpkin patch sincere? I really want to know.)
  • Even though she didn’t believe, Sally waited for The Great Pumpkin with Linus because she loved him. (D’awww!)
  • Linus’ sister Lucy was ashamed to have a brother who believed in The Great Pumpkin. (Silly Lucy. If only you knew what great food it brings!)
  • Sally becomes angry with herself for choosing to wait with Linus instead of Trick-or-Treating and exclaims, “I could’ve had candy-apples and gum, and cookies, and money, and all sorts of things!” (Or, you could’ve waited just a little bit longer and had this Great Pumpkin Potluck!)
