Pumpkin Madness

My creation
Originally uploaded by princess_bleck.

Today, just because Alison wanted to, we made some pumpkin pies from a pumpkin.

We started off with a visit to the pumpkin patch. Some handknits joined us - we used my French Market Bag to collect our little pumpkins and brought along Emmy's quickly finished pixie hat. For a mere $5 we got our baking pumpkin and some little ones to draw on.

We gutted the pumpkin and cut it into chunks, set them on the stove to boil and got to coloring. A word of advice to anyone who attempts this, boil the chunks with the skin on and peel once it's cooked - it's lots easier.

Mixed in some spices and ta da, after an hour in the oven, we had pumpkin pies!

Happy Autumn! Enjoy your weekend!
