Bake a batch of puffy, cakey pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from La Femme Epicure.

Design a spooky-elegant pumpkin table and plan this year’s Pumpkin Carving Party menu (last year’s was pretty epic.)

Starting my day right with healthy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie! Great recipe here though I swap the oats for Vanilla Protein Powder instead.

Also looking forward to pumpkin pie, pumpkin patches, pumpkin pancakes and toasted pumpkin seeds. What about you?
