Pumpkin pie

Our vegatable box this week included a pumpkin (a sugar pie variety).
Finlay was inordinately excited about this and wanted to cook it himself.
He couldn't decide between pumpkin pie and pumpkin soup. A favourite book is Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper in which 3 animals co-operate to make soup.

For lunch today we ate the completed pie, and it was delicious!

Finlay did all the mixing and measuring - a big advantage of cooking with American cup measures. We used this recipe from the farms which supply the vegetables.

There was enough pumpkin left over so I made soup as well - which we ate before the pie....a very pumpkin-y meal!

Hi Alison -- I'm two weeks behind on both blog reading and pie baking. Bill and I are going to do our pumpkin up this weekend. I see this week's box is going to have Yet. Another. Giant. Squash. Good think I like squash soup!
