Speaking of giving thanks for the food that pumpkins provide, let's give thanks for that quintessential fall dessert - pumpkin crunch! It's super easy to make and feeds a crowd. Plus, you only need a few ingredients to make this yummy treat.
It's wonderful on a cold afternoon with a cup of coffee, or after Sunday dinner. Some of us even like to eat it for breakfast! (hey, if doughnuts count as "breakfast food" this can, too!) And one of our favorite things about pumpkin crunch is that it may actually last a couple of days, and taste even better once the flavors have a little time to set up.
Thank you for this wonderful food, Lord. May it nourish our bodies and warm our hearts in gratitude. Amen.
