Chris and I are heading to our local pumpkin patch tonight to pick out our pumpkins for the season! I am super excited. We are going to carve them as our date night this Friday.
If you use the pumpkin correctly (carve, seeds, filling, etc.), its actually Earth-friendly since you aren't wasting food! Also, obviously its even more Earth-friendly if you buy your pumpkins from a local farm.
Here are my Top 5 suggestions as to how you can use your pumpkin fully, not letting any part go to waste:
2) Carving! Another super fun given. Isn't this cool?!
3) Seeds - YUM! Here is my favorite recipe (I add a bit of cayenne and black pepper for kick).
4) Ravioli - fantastico! Recipe here.
5) Pumpkin Pie. I die. Perfect fall dessert or breakfast! (Yes, I said breakfast!) Look at these mini pies!
Also, did you know you can use these to keep your pumpkin fresh?! Pretty awesome, huh?!
Yay fall! Yay pumpkins! Yay Earth!
