Drum roll please…….

We have reached Pumpkin Week!

This recipe marks day one of a delicious fall flavored week at A Rented Kitchen. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty jazzed on the idea.

Fall is one of my absolute favorite seasons. The word alone catapults images through my mind of burgundy cardigans, hands wrapped around warm coffee cups, the crunch of leaves, and books by windowsills.

In the food world however, fall always makes me think of warm dishes, baked goods, cinnamon, and more often than not- pumpkin! {duh}

Thus, in celebration of this beautiful season, and one of my favorite ingredients, we will be celebrating with a weeklong series on fall’s premier vegetable, the pumpkin!

Today’s recipe is for Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal- I figured it would be wise to start off with a dish reserved for the most important meal of the day!

Therefore, dig in people. I have had this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for breakfast the last two days, and I promise you it is deeeeeelicious. Your tastebuds will be so grateful.

Come back tomorrow! More delicious pumpkin recipes to come!

With Love,

A Rented Kitchen
