I have a goat cheese spread made with pumpkin, honey and nutmeg (I think). Need suggestions on how to serve it. Thanks!

How about on crostini? Slice a baguette, brush the slices with olive oil and toast them on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven (5 to 10 minutes).

Sounds good. It seems too sweet to serve on crackers but your idea would be perfect.

Wheatmeal crackers (also called - somewhat less appealingly - 'digestive biscuits' in the UK, ) are very slightly sweet, so they work really well with soft/sweet-ish cheeses. Great combo with cheese/fruit for dessert too. Carr's brand are widely available - called simply 'whole wheat crackers' in the US, but they're the same thing.

I would add garlic or black pepper to balance the sweetness. If you use Amanda's crostini idea, which i think is excellent, I would rub a cut raw garlic clove across the toasted bread before adding the goat cheeses spread. Or I would use a black pepper cracker, like a Carr's black pepper water cracker or something similar.
