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!!
