Today it was super cold in Chicagoland, but thankfully sunny after lots of gray days. We have had a pumpkin on the counter for a while that my daughter got on her Halloween pumpkin farm trip. We decided to make roast pumpkin seeds. My neighbor makes them and they are fabulous. I don't know what she puts in them besides butter. I used Earth Balance, salt, and sugar. They were so good!
What to do with the pumpkin? I have actually never cooked a real pumpkin. I cut it in big chunks, sprayed it with olive oil, and threw it in the oven. My 6 year old enjoyed it straight with salt.
For me and my oldest daughter I made this curried pumpkin soup from Kim Barnouin's new book, Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Every Day Cookbook. It has apples and wine, onions, etc. I added some garlic. Very delicious.
Should I be concerned that I have the same hairstyle as my dogs? Shaggy and messy and in my eyes!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
