Pumpkin Day

Our beautiful weather had to end sometime so today was a great day to stay indoors and experience pumpkins to the fullest.  Today we decided to carve pumpkins (a sensory experience in and of its self) roast seeds, make pie and bread.  I made salted seeds, garlic and herb seeds and then cinnamon topped with a bit of stevia to add sweetness with out carbs.  I got so wrapped up in the seeds, the bread has to wait until tomorrow.  We had great fun digging out the guts and creating faces and other such creatures on our pumpkins.  I was the only one who didn't make a face on my pumpkin because I like to bake mine, puree it and make goodies out of it.  Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are on my list of things to make with my yummy gourd.  Here are some pictures of our day:


  1. AWWW Looks like fun Heidi! Good luck in getting the bread done today and with your yummy sounding cookies.

  2. Mmmmm....will you post instructions for how to get the goods for pumpkin goodies? I've always wondered (and suppose I COULD find it online) but have always used canned.

    I'm a PUMPKIN FREAK! LOVE all things pumpkin and would love to make my own :)

  3. Sounds like such a cozy day! I can smell the pumpkin...yum!
