Pumpkins and Thanksgiving

Now that your jack-o-lantern has been laid to rest, it is time to think about pumpkins in a different way — as food and home decor.

Pumpkins are an integral part of November’s main holiday in the U.S. They are the prime ingredient in the most popular dessert, pumpkin pie. But you can also use pumpkins a variety of other fall recipes such as pumpkin soup (my favorite is a curried pumpkin soup), pumpkin bread and even pumpkin cookies.

But they also make great decorative items. Toss a few miniature pumpkins and gourds together, add some maize and a wicker cornucopia and you’ve got a perfect fall decoration.

Recently, I visited the atrium at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. They made great use of pumpkins for decoration. I thought I’d share a few of them with you here. I’ll be putting up a whole gallery of images later — after I’ve settled into my new home and the holidays are through.
