A couple of weeks ago we went to visit Tisha and she gave the kids this pumpkin that she had grown. The kids and Joel have been after me ever since we got it to cut it up and make a pumpkin pie. Have you ever cut up a pumpkin? It is hard work!!
I roasted the pumpkin seeds. The square dish is just salted and the rectangular dish is cinnamon and sugar.

Squirrel had to practice cutting pumpkins out of dough!
Cooked and mashed pumpkin ready for the freezer.
Fresh pumpkin pie
The pretty little pumpkin pie crust
Overall the experience with a real pumpkin wasn't too bad. There was just way too much pumpkin. Oh! I forgot about the pumpkin bread that is still in the oven cooking.
