  1. Thanks for the links, unfortunately nobody in my family likes pumpkin except me. I once tasted a pumpkin pie and it was superb!

  2. I am not too fond of pumpkin but it can be extremely good in some desserts and some soups.

  3. Great idea Doreen! The amount of pumpkins that I've gone through in my life and had thrown out after only one week of being on display for Halloween. From now on I'll think of this the next time I ever carve a pumpkin!

  4. Hi ladies, it's amazing how many people do not like pumpkins...I've tasted it as a savoury as well as a sweet dish and liked both.
    It was fun doing research on this. I knew that the pumpkin is a member of the squash family, but what I did not know was that although it is treated like a vegetable, it is technically a fruit. The reason a pumpkin is a fruit is because it grows on a vine and contains seeds, well I guess much like the tomato!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, your input and time are greatly appreciated.
