Cooking Pumpkins

Last week’s box of vegetables from the farm included a pumpkin.

An actual real pumpkin. We have never cooked a real pumpkin before, but we felt up to the task.

The boys insisted on drawing faces on it before we cooked it.

Matthew drew a person.

David did some drawing, then he asked Mommy to draw a face.

Grandma got to draw a face, too.

Ta da!


Then we cut it, seeded it,

roasted it in the oven,

peeled it, pureed it, and turned it into a yummy pumpkin dessert.

Which we ate.
