    Is Pumpkin the New Bacon?

    CNBC thinks so.

    Restaurant demand for pumpkin in menu items has soared 38 percent in two years, according to Technomic, with items like pumpkin seed crepes at Adobo Grill and the Pumpkin Martini at Burton's Grill.

    "Pumpkin has a healthful perception," says Technomic Executive VP Darren Tristano. He says the ingredient has gotten so popular it's finally gone mainstream. "It's getting to McDonald's (MCD) in milkshakes, and as a result, it is likely getting to a point of final maturity. We'll look towards sustainability over time."

    No, it isn't the new bacon.

    I have never met a Jew that didn't sneak a piece of bacon. I can't say that about pumpkin.

    We used to grow pumpkins and gooseberries in my backyard; good contrast of flavor.

    I love pumpkin flavored foods. In the last few weeks we have tried, pumpkin spice bread, pumpkin spice bagels, pumpkin butter, pumpkin cheesecake cookies, and I made a pumpkin & cream based sauce for pouring over ravolis. So delish!

    My wife baked a Peach Mango pie for dessert tonight. Maybe I'll suggest a Mango Pumpkin pie if this works...

    No, you're thinking of sweet potatoes.

    Maybe.

    Sweet Potato pie is totally Excellent but I don't think it needs Mango. I'll stick with Mango adding to the flavor quotient of Pumpkin. Maybe some peppers, too.

    You can't put pumpkin on a grilled cheeseburger or meatloaf. So the answer is "no".

    That's the way I cook. Hot peppers might be really nice in that.

    Learned something new. Didn't know that a pumpkin is a fruit, like the avocado. Learned about the avocado part a couple of months ago, and still remember it

    When I get home, I'll post it.

    My co-worker brought in two homemade loaves of pumpkin bread with streusel on top. Yum!
