Halloween Pumpkin

Thursday, November 01, 2012

For breakfast I had cooked fresh pumpkin, applesauce, and wheat germ this morning. With a cup of tea, absolutely yummy!! I roasted the pumpkin seeds yesterday afternoon and ate them in between trick or treaters. After 9 o'clock I turned off the porch light and cut up the jack 'o lantern. I just microwaved large pieces for 12 minutes or so until soft. It tasted good just plain. When you eat it plain it's like squash, not like pumpkin in pie. It takes the spices and sweetening to make it taste like the pumpkin of my youth, but actually it is good both ways.

Natalie was Belle and Gwen was a darling bee. They stopped by with their parents after Trunk or Treat at their church and we visited neighbors we know. Such fun!!

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend Halloween. I have this huge pumpkin that I'm going to have to *do something* with this weekend, before I get ready to head your way.

I am going to focus this weekend on prepping the house. Next weekend on prepping my travel tools.

It's getting more real every day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Didn't know you could eat the jack o' lantern pumpkins -- I only thought you could eat the small ones. Silly me! You've taught me a new thing for today!!

    Sounds yummy. I have been experimenting with canned pumpkin lately and mixing it into hot cereals. Yummy!
