OK, so we did finally get a Christmas tree yesterday. I think I was waiting to eat up all the pumpkins first before I put up wreaths.
When I bought this Turk's cap pumpkin, I asked the Amish girl if it was edible. She looked surprised, but said, well sure.
I made Butternut Harvest Stew and Vegetarian Groundnut Stew, both from Simply in Season. Both delicious. So think twice before you throw your autumn pumpkins in the compost bin (or heaven forfend, the trash). But I'm ready for evergreens now.
