We've been so busy the last few months. I have a confession. Sitting on my counter is a large pumpkin we bought in mid-October with some vague plans to carve this cute scarecrow design we saw on the Better Homes & Gardens website. We never did. We were going to take it to a Fall Festival on October 27th, but the weather was so bad, we skipped it.
Now I'm wondering if I should just try to cook it. I've heard cooking pumpkins this large isn't a good idea, but then I've had other people tell me they do it all the time. I guess I don't have much to lose, and if it works.... mmmm... pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies and pumpkin soup.
