pumpkin!

A few weeks ago, I bought a pumpkin at the fruit stand near the subway on my way home from work.  There were only a few left and I bought a big one.  I neglected to think about how heavy it would be to cart it all the way home.  There were (of course) no seats on the T so I had to carry it the whole trip.  When I finally climbed up to the 4th story and put it down on my kitchen counter, I could have sworn it weighed 20 pounds.  As it turned out, it was only about 10 pounds (but in my defense, I had lifted weights and worked out my arms that morning…)

I promptly cut it in quarters and baked it.  My goal was to make lots and lots of pumpkin puree.  Making it is easy–just cut the pumpkin and put it face down on a baking sheet.  Pour a few cups of water on the baking sheet and bake at 350 until the pumpkin’s flesh is soft and easy comes away from the skin (30ish minutes).

After the pumpkin cools, take out the flesh and mash it (either by hand, or with a food processor).  Easy enough–fresh  pumpkin, which tastes much better than the canned variety.

Don’t forget to save the seeds!  I roasted these ones with butter and salt and they were delicious (and healthy!)

After my pumpkin was reduced to only it’s flesh, I still had about 7 pounds of pumpkin puree.  What did I do with it?

I made apple pumpkin soup and then I made whole wheat pumpkin scones.  But I still have a lot of pumpkin left.  What should I make?  A pie?  Anyone have some great pumpkin recipes?

  1. It comes with a viewer warning. AN INTERVIEW WITH MATT GROENING, conducted over lunch at Mommy Fortuna’s Restaurant on Haight Street, noon, April 24, 1986. This week’s study on artificial intelligence really caused me to start thinking about the implications that robotics could have on everyday human life as technology advances.Little Sophie played tag team style by the Clagett triplets does a lot of hard core crying. Obvious mistakes before the finish with the car mechanical failures. They frame, draw the viewer to the subject, and act as an interesting contrast with the angles of the cars juxtaposed on them.

  2. Haulstead has appeared in seven games, missing two of the last four. I don’t know if I would I ever had unhealthy body image. To get that first throw and break the world record was such a relief. The patient goes home, the focus is still on primary things.Jehovah’s Witness, age 19, died April 1992 at St. This in turn releases endorphins, the body’s own morphine. In some areas, it is considered littering, vandalism or the theft of a small parcel of land. I think this show actually takes you inside (her world).
