Friday Photo - Last of the pumpkins

We have one pumpkin left over from the Autumn. Any ideas what to make it into?

Happy weekend everyone x x

What a beautiful pumpkin! It is almost a shame to do anything to it, but I do love me some pumpkin pie! Happy weekend to you as well1

Great shot Sarah Elizabeth. Lots of character. Hmm, are you sick of pumpkin soup? I like it with some cummin and coriander in it for a bit of a change :)

Try this recipe for pumpkin risotto, it's FAB

I added some bacon bits as I was cooking for a confirmed meat-eater (I am too, but I like variety).

From the same pumpkin you can also make cannelloni

and chowder/soup.

Bon appetite!

You should make beef and rice pumpkin casserole. I actually don't have the recipe (although I am sure it is on-line). Basically, it is ground beef, seasoned rice, pumpkin finely chopped, sesasoning and you cook it inside of the scooped-out pumpkin. It was wonderful (had it at a friend's Halloween party).

Sarah's idea of pumpkin risotto for sure. That sounds so good on this foggy morning in California. Use some pancetta in it too and leeks instead of onion.

I may have to do this for dinner myself but I have no fresh pumpkin like you!

Pumpkin soup or pumpkin pie :) I have a recipe for pumpkin tiramisu and although I was very very sceptical at first, it tasted heavenly.

Sarah, lovely photo - can't say I've ever attempted to make pumpkin pie, but it sounds delish. One thing we do often is a side dish - mashing pumpkin and feta cheese together. Very tasty and simple.

Great photo. Pumpkin soup would be my choice.

Sarah,
I'm writing an article for the International Herald Tribune/New York Times about great home restorations blogs, and I'd like to interview you. Can you please email me at roxana.popescu [at] gmail.com so I can tell you more about the story and we can set up a time to speak? I wasn't able to find your email address online. My deadline is this week, so if you could get back to me soon I'd appreciate it.
Grazie e a presto, spero!

Thanks for all of the recipe ideas. They all sound delicious. Hopefully the pumpkin is big enough to give more than one of them a try.
