I had no idea what to do with pumpkin butter until I found Tis the Season for Pumpkin Butter on a Trader Joe's cooking blog.
I made both the Harvest Glaze Carrots and the Pumpkin Turnovers. The carrots could not have been more of a hit. It's no secret that I prepare vegetables for every meal. In return, no one eats the vegetables. They rot as leftovers in the refrigerator. Then, I throw them in the compost pile. Repeat.
Not this time. My whole family inhaled the harvest carrots. Bonus: they are crazy easy to prepare.
Run to Trader Joe's and grab a jar of Pumpkin Butter. They are running low and will not restock again until next year.
Speaking of Trader Joes... it's amazing what kids will do for a sticker. Teachers use stickers as rewards. The doctor hands out stickers after the visit. Even Trader Joe's offers a sticker station for the kids to visit on the way out the door. My kids never complain about going to Trader Joe's with me because they know they will get a sticker before they leave.
Why are stickers so powerful?
