Last week, someone offered my husband the kind gift of a freshly harvested pumpkin; he had some help with getting it into the car, but getting it out and hauling it home was some trouble, I can tell you.
I cleared the table, and we spent an hour cutting the pumpkin and wrapping it in cling film. It filled our entire second refrigerator, which I've been contemplating to turn off for the sake of saving some electricity, but evidently it was not to be.
After giving away some slices to relatives and friends, and after we made pumpkin soup and pumpkin fritters, it still seemed as though we are going to eat a lot of pumpkin for the next six months or so. I sat down at Google and typed, "what to do with pumpkin". Mainly got suggestions for using the pumpking as a decorative piece, but I'd guess ours is a little past that stage. :o)
Don't you just love a gift of food? :o)
