Hello Lovelies, we are so lucky with the weather at the moment and can enjoy a golden fall. So we spent as much times as possible outside to soak up the sun, but we are also amazed how you can watch the seasons change in nature. So at the evening it's not that warm anymore which makes us craving all the delicious fall foods. And of course all things pumpkin are on top of our list. Do you know more about pumpkin and its history? I did a litte research and thats what I found:
"Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, was found in Mexico.
Since some squash share the same botanical classifications as pumpkins, the names are frequently used interchangeably. One often-used botanical classification relies on the characteristics of the stems: pumpkin stems are more rigid, prickly, and angular (with an approximate five-degree angle) than squash stems, which are generally softer, more rounded, and more flared where joined to the fruit. Pumpkin fruits are a type of botanical berry known as a pepo.The color of pumpkins derives from orange carotenoid pigments, including beta-cryptoxanthin, alpha and beta carotene, all of which are provitamin A compounds converted to vitamin A in the body.

And of course there is a new recipe for you today for delicious Pumpkin Burger Patties with sesame. Easy to make, yummy and kid-approved.
The burger patties are crispy on the outside, but have a velvety and soft inside. Perfect served with a salad or as part of a buddha bowl.
And of course you can enjoy them on a burger, thats how my girls liked them the most as well. Ad if you might feel adventurous today why not try my Avocado- or Tomatoburger below. And I can't wait to hear your reports on how you ate and liked them :-).
I really hope you can all enjoy a golden fall as well. I will share some more pumpkin recipes in the next days, before we are leaving for some summer sun again.
