Baking pumpkin on a rainy day Yesterday was such a perfect day to bake a pumpkin, so rainy and cold. I still have a quarter of it left, it was so large. We made an impromptu pumpkin soup with organic chicken sausage spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. So delicious, it was shared around our cozy table with friends and family. My beautiful neighbor, Jill, brought over some homemade molasses bread just in time for dessert. Still warm, we spread it with butter, fig conserve and sipped hot licorice tea. This morning, I added spoonfuls of the puree to yogurt with cinnamon and a little conserve for sweetness and ta-da.......pumpkin pie yogurt! The remainder of the puree will be reserved for an actual pie or two on Halloween. Hooray for fall!
