Pumpkin Shortage

For those who feed your dogs pumpkin, stock up now! I saw this again on CNN today. After Thanksgiving it might be hard to find.

Although, it sounds like from what I've read that organic canned pumpkin might still be available. That is what I've been using recently.

Hmmm. . . Last year I made this:

waaayy good!!!

Last week I made key lime pie. i could see where that would go with anything.

And speaking of shortages, I saw a blurb about waffle shortages. I thought what the heck? Flour, milk, oil, eggs, baking soda - huh? found out it was this:

which does not effect me at all, since I make my waffles from scratch. Much better. Oh, and soon I can make egg nog waffles - yummmm.

Waffles - not just for dogs any more.

How funny, I just heard about the Waffle shortage on the Colbert Report.

You can also cook yams which provides the same fiber. I steam cook them when I do.

oh man, has anyone else had the sweet potato french fries? de-lish!!! Target used to have them, but haven't the last couple of times i've been. thankfully i found them at costco, so i got a HUGE bag. (Costco is a warehouse store where you can only buy things in bulk. dogs like it because they often have bully sticks.)

I love sweet potato fries.

Well that just stinks. rats.
actually my dogs prefer the "cheap" brand instead of libby's. i think it is too strong. oh well.

Not just Libby's, unfortunately. It would be the cheap brands too.

And on another topic, sweet potato french fries rock! They even have them on the lunch menu at work now. I don't feel so guilty about getting the french fries then. 🙂

Yes sweet potato anything for me please, except maybe pie..nope has to be foodie stuff, not after dinner stuff, and if they are fried, even better..

Waffle shortage, I just about fell out of my office chair this morning when I read that, I mean come on, do we have to make that news..?
My kids love peanut butter jelly waffle sandwiches, so they will be hurt'n, but there are other brands besides Eggo..

Or Sweet Potato, potato chips… again.. de-lish!!!!!

We get frozen sweet potato fries and love them. sometimes I give the girls one before cooking, and they think they are frozen treats.

That first recipe I posted was for Sweet potato cheesecake. You might change your mind. 😉
But then I love cheesecake.

I was mainly thinking sw. pot pie..not a favorite, cheese cake sounds very interesting…and dreamy, I mean creamy..;)

Jepp, it has gotten printed, it looks and sounds delish..

OK everybody this thread is going off topic from pumpkin shortages to sweet potato recipes. Let's all calm down here and get back to the subject. (-:

Wouldn't any kind of squash work? Does it have to be pumpkin or can it be, I don't know, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, hubbard squash….?

We used to grow all of those when I was a brat ankle-biter kid on the farm. (And zucchini...lots and lots of zucchini... I still have nightmares about fried zucchini, zucchini soup, zucchini bread, zucchini zucchini zucchini:eek:)

Here's Belinda being forced to draw zucchinis.:D

I think any of those squashes would be fine.

Yes zucchini and fried green tomatoes and rubarh pie yes greens picked from yard looked like weeds. What about homemade bourbon balls at holidays?

I knew I should have put this thread in the off topic section. :p:D

Sorry Nemo the zucchins did it set me off on old time foods. Got my pumpkin pies in Sara Lee boxes today just in case.

The most hilarious thing about the photo is that little girl could pass for me when I was her age…at least pass as my sister. 😃
