For The Love of a Pumpkin..

I love our pumpkins. I love them alot.  They are one of my garden favorites.  I have a dream where I have a entire field of pumpkins and everyday I go out and walk around them, patting each of them and then laying in the middle and telling them a story.  Then they all come alive and surround me, and we all hold hands and dance around.  It sorta sounds likes a cult, but I would totally be into a pumpkin cult.  I love pumpkins!
So with 4 pumpkins sitting on our counter, I decided it was time to get them baked and pureed, enjoying their seeds along the way.  I’m thinking pumpkin soup, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie – anyone else have any pumpkin recipes they’d like to share?  I’d love to hear them!

Hello pumpkin, look at you.

You have the most beautiful insides I’ve ever seen.  (not a line I was expecting to say.. ever)

But boy, is this the worst job ever. I think it’s worst than deshelling peas.

After I separate the guts from the seeds, I will let them sit on a cookie sheet for 24 hours, this will make any of the guts that are left hard so it’s easy to separate.  Then I will bake the seeds and eat them all!
