After baking muffins (see post: Baking in the Cool Days), I had some left over pumpkin puree, so I decided to try a recipe for a pumpkin smoothie. It included orange juice, and frozen banana, and sounded delicious. Big fail! Oh my goodness, I took a sip, gagged, walked to the kitchen sink and spit it out.
Gee, for some strange reason my husband refused to sample the glass-full I had poured for him!
I thought I was over the fiasco, but today as I bit into a pumpkin-raisin muffin, the flavor brought back the horrid memory of the smoothie. It might be awhile before I can enjoy anything pumpkin flavored. Agh.
