Ham at Easter. Corn on the cob for the 4th of July. Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. A Christmas orange in the bottom of your stocking. Eating seasonally isn't taking the freedom out of life-- it's adding to the fun of life.
We recently made our annual dinner in a pumpkin. And the fall weather was beautiful enough to eat out of doors.
I made two pumpkins since we were having guests.
We also enjoyed sparkling apple juice, and apple slices.
And a home baked pumpkin pie topped with fresh cream for dessert.
Dinner in a pumpkin would be a strange thing to eat in the spring, but we do look forward to eating it each year, in the fall.

I love to get new recipes. Link up here to share your real food recipes.
Real food is just what it sounds like: real ingredients, fruits, vegetables, milled grains, basic dairy products, things in forms close to the way they can be found in nature. (We don't take ourselves too seriously --if a recipe is made from combining the ingredients from six tin cans--we are probably not interested. But if you have an ingredient here or there that is typically on the "do not invite" list we'll still be your friends-- 'cause we do it too.)
If you've blogged your recipe grab a "Real Food Friday" badge for you post or sidebar and leave us a link. If you don't blog. Link to an online source of the recipe and leave a comment on this post telling us about it. I'll leave the linky open all weekend, and see you back for the next Real Food Friday in a fortnight.
