My What a Pumpkin!
As you know, I'm a fan of making the most of what you have, and at the moment I have AN ENORMOUS PUMPKIN! Home grown in Nona Panda's garden.
So far we have had Roast Pumpkin, Zucchini and Cherry Tomato Salad with balsamic dressing. Mmmmmnn.
We have made these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, but I used brown sugar instead of white, and put double the spice amounts! And I'm sorry you can't have a taste, because they are an unexpected delight!
We have also made this Spicy Roast Pumpkin dip. I surfed the internet for a while, then just made up my own recipe by throwing in salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and some sweet chilli sauce. As you can see, even the spawn didn't mind it!
I've given some of the pumpkin away, but still have 1/3 in my fridge! Anyone got any more ideas? I think tonight we'll be having Pumpkin Soup anyway!
My days have a bit of screaming, a bit of cooking, a bit of crafting, a ^*@# load of dishes and sometimes a dash of rollerskating!
I am SCREAMSTRESS, and I live in a usually messy and always noisy house with my husband the Panda, and my three spawn, 5yr old Big S, and 3yr old twins, Little S and Spawnette. Oh, and I couldn't stay sane without the help of my trusty sidekick THE WHITE CLOUD (mum).
