Everything Pumpkin

I love fall people. Everything about it. From the crisp weather to wearing scarves to everything pumpkin!

 On Sunday the husband and I decided to make a fresh pumpkin pie. This is something I had never done before but it was SO much fun. We bought the pumpkins at the grocery store that are specifically marked for making pies. They even had a sticker on them with instructions. Why thank you grocery store. 

We put on some of our favorite music and got to work. While cleaning out the pumpkins we decided it would be fun to make pumpkin seeds as well. One of the blogs I read had recently written a post about roasted pumpkin seeds and I was excited to try it out.

After all of our goodies were finished we sat down with a glass of wine and watched son in law. Which just so happens to be my favorite movie to watch around thanksgiving time. 

It really was a wonderful day and the pumpkin pie and pumpkin seeds were quite delicious! 

Here are the recipes:

Pumpkin Pie:

Beat 2 eggs, add 1/4 tsp allspice, 3-4 cups brown sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1-1/2  cups milk and 2 cups cooked squash

bake: 425 for 10 minutes, then lover to 350 and cook until custard is hot. 

Happy Fall and Happy Cooking
