Have you heard there is going to be a pumpkin shortage this Fall?  Pumpkin crops are down by about half this year so while stores will probably have enough canned pumpkin through New Year, they probably won’t be restocking after that any time soon.   Sad, sad day.

And especially sad if you don’t get your pumpkin fill ASAP!  As in my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pound Cake, Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Nutella Crepes, Pumpkin Angel Food Cake French Toast, Pumpkin Coconut Chicken Fall Curry just to name a few… and now these 100% DELISH Spicy Thai Pumpkin Noodles.  What to make first?!
