It's time for another round of 5 After 5!  In case you missed it, last week's list was 5 of your favorite soups and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here - then catch up on all the old editions here.

Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.

And this series is a link party, so be sure to scroll down and join in all the fun with us this week!

List 5 great pumpkin recipes

We choose savory over sweet with most things, but especially when it comes to pumpkin.  

These are a few of our favorite recipes:

1.  Chewy Country Seed Bread

This is one of our favorite breads - partly because it's full of yummy pumpkin seeds.  It's even better if you roast the seeds first (although we can't help but gobble up all the roasted pumpkin seeds the minute they're cool from the oven!)

2.  Pumpkin Seed Squash Muffins

These muffins pack a one-two punch, because they're not only filled with seeds, but pureed pumpkin, too.

Mmmm, perfect for a snack alone or to go along with soup!

3.  Pumpkin Seed Pesto Pizza

This is one of our absolute favorite pizzas and everyone who's ever tried it agrees that it's amazing.

It's an odd combination, but trust me, it works.

4.  Mac & Cheese

If you click on over, you'll see that this recipe is actually for butternut mac & cheese, but we make it all the time with pumpkin and it's just as delicious that way, too!

5.  Perfect Pumpkin Soup

This has become our go-to soup for pretty much every week this fall - it's loaded with nutrients and incredibly delicious - it's the perfect soup!

For next week:

List 5 ways to make your home homey

Even those of us who opt for more spartan furnishings like to liven the place up a little around this time of year - what things do you do to make your home homey?

And now, here's this week's link party!  Two other fabulous bloggers have teamed up with me to create lists of five each week and we hope that you'll join us, too!

That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!  

Every Saturday, just stop by one of our three blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!

The rules are simple:  just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow each of the three hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.
