It’s cooking season this whole year isn’t it?

Well, just the other week while trying to figure out what I want to do with the 1/4 piece of pumpkin in the fridge, I figured why don’t I come up with a recipe myself this time instead of hunting the web looking for what others have done. Growing up, mom never really featured pumpkin in the dining table much, so I had to actually come up with something somewhat novel, and I did – here I present to you – pumpkin omelette recipe, created by yours truly.
