Pumpkin Rice-Autumn In A Bowl

pumpkin rice edit
Y’all know how much I love this time of year!

By the time summer is finally winding down, I’m so tired of the heat ( and burned out on gardening), that I’m actually excited to see the sun set by supper time.

This excitement usually only lasts a couple of months before I start going stir crazy.  But since I’m still embracing this season, comfort food is essential.

When we carved our pumpkin last week, I knew I wanted to use every single piece of it.  So for this recipe, I used the roasted guts.  And of course I had to serve it in my fancy fox bowl 🙂
