Yum! I'm going to try the squash in the microwave. Sounds good. How long do you cook it in the microwave?

Like ANGEL1066 I use fresh butternut squash cooked in the microwave... mash it and add nutmeg emoticon No sugar or crust needed. It's delish hot or cold and I don't wait until Thanksgiving to enjoy it emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

When making pumpkin pie- its with canned pumpkin.
Tuna fish or chicken salad sandwiches.
I will sometimes use canned veggies to add to a meal, but I rinse them off. Plus I will use canned tomatoes and sauces.

From fresh butternut squash, which is a form of pumpkin but sweeter and tastier than most. I microwave it, wrapped in plastic wrap and punctured, until soft, scrape the flesh out of the skin with a large spoon (after discarding the seeds), and add the flesh to the liquids required for pie in a large measuring container, so I can tell when I have the required amount. Then I puree the lot together in a blender, adding sugar and spices and blending until smooth. It really takes very little more effort than using canned pumpkin, and results in a lovely pie. You can remove the seeds before microwaving if you wish and roast them, they are delicious and good for you, and make a nice crunchy topping for pie or vegetables, but that takes a bit longer to do.

Pumpkin pie is one of the foods I cannot resist.
Instead of all those calories in a pie I roast fresh pumpkin, add a little salt, Splenda and tons of cinnamon.
This satisfies my desire to cheat and eat the whole pie!

For me, canned is the way to go. But, I do use fresh butternut squash, so I guess I should try a fresh pumpkin sometime. Plus, I like to roast the seeds.

My DH isn't particularly fond of pumpkin pie so if its just the two of it we don't even have it. If we have company I generally just buy one - Sam's Club has really good ones!! emoticon We generally do Thanksgiving lunch with my SIL's family - we just have one child (our DD) and he has a big family.

I would never even consider making pumpkin pie from scratch. emoticon emoticon
My hubby usually makes the crust and I make a filling using canned pumpkin. I would rather make pumpkin cheesecake, though!!

I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie, but if I make one, it's usually from a can. I made one from a fresh pumpkin last year, though, and it tasted so much better than the canned ones. I may have to try fresh again this year!

I like the fresh. Make lots for the freezer but if I run out will use from a can just be careful not to get the pumpkin pie fill that already has the spices and god knows what. Not a good choice.
