Someone I work with always describes the best way to tackle a large project as being just like "Eating an Elephant"  ONE BITE AT A TIME!  Which is how I felt about this pumpkin

I decided to have a go at making some pumpkin wine.  This needed 5 pounds of pumpkin so I chose my biggest one and started to chop.  It said to grate it, but I thought it would spoil my nails so food processed it.  

However this only used up less than a quarter so decided to make a second batch of wine which left:

This much!  I made two lots of soup, one with just a potato and some chilli, it was a bit thin.  The next lot I added some red lentils, a can of tomatoes and some curry paste and that was lovely -thick and tasty
But I still had some left so I made

a cake, spicy and spongy.  Didn't put it in the fridge and it had gone mouldy by Tuesday so had to throw the rest out.

But there was still some left, so I roasted it with chillis, no photo of that but some sausage rolls that I made.

AND THAT IS HOW I ATE A PUMPKIN  one bite at a time!!!!

You have been a very busy girl... I can't say that pumpkin is my favorite food, but I do love the seeds! And if a person does like pumpkin, this is the best time of year to enjoy! I hope this comment finds you well!
