What Will You Do with Those Pumpkins?

Lonely pumpkins sitting on the doorsteps of our home. This is about to change!

I really hate to admit this. I am the kind of person who will leave Christmas lights up year round if my wife didn’t make me take them down. It takes a lot of work to wrap a string of lights around a tree. Now I have to climb a ladder and hang them around the house? No, don’t make me! I like the Christmas trees that are already installed with lights and all you have to do is plug and play.

Same kind of thing happened when my wife asked, “What will you do with those pumpkins?” I immediately had the thought of taking my boys out in the back yard with a couple of baseball bats and playing a little pumpkin ball. That would have been a little messy. We would most likely have needed safety glasses too. So, I came back to reality and said emphatically to my wife, “Let’s make something out of them!”

We brought the pumpkins inside and my wife and daughter scoured the web for the best pumpkin recipes. There were many and it took them a while to settle on what they wanted to make. Both their pumpkin ideas came from All Recipes website. I thought I would get out of this project without doing a thing. I did not succeed. I was tasked with making the frosting for the cake. I took it a little far with the decorating of the cake. I did enjoy it though. Take a look at the finished products below. If you want ideas of what to do with your pumpkins, give the All Recipes site a shot. Who knew pumpkins could taste so good?
