Thanksgiving is never complete without that pumpkin pie baked with care by a relative anticipating all their loved ones eating it with joy. Or for some of us, that pumpkin pie picked up at Jewel-Osco on the way to grandma’s house because your cousin forgot they had volunteered to bake that year. Either way that pie somehow makes it to the table. Thanksgiving though is still a week away, and pumpkins can be used for more than just pies and lattes!
