So what happens to pumpkins AFTER Halloween?

They sort of look like spaghetti squash

Ree Drummond of Pioneer Woman

has a great tutorial about how to handle those bad boy pumpkins the day after.

Following her directions, I cut up and scooped the insides out.  Cut it into quarters and baked it for an hour and a quarter.  It peeled quite easily.  I have always peeled it before hand but this was way easier.

Then out came the food processor and a bit of water and a few pulses later:

This will become some pumpkin deliciousness.......I just LOVE pumpkin stuff.......yes........pumpkin.

For right now, it will reside in the freezer.

OMG!  I need to find a recipe for pumpkin cinnamon rolls dripping with thick sweet icing for breakfast.  Heck....for right now!


  1. We must be on the same wavelength. I just cooked a pumpkin today but put it whole, as is, in the crockpot with just a little water on the bottom, maybe half a cup. Set it to low for about 6 hours. Can do squash that way too. I can't wait to make a pie!

  2. Pumpkin cinnamon rolls sound amazing. I like this recipe from Smitten Kitten for pumpkin butter which is good to put in lots of things and I just saw this blog post with a recipe for pumpkin spice cake donuts with cinnamon glaze that looks worth trying ... Bon appetite.

  3. Oh how I love your halloween themed banner! And I love having pumpkin anytime of the year.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
