Pumpkins, Post-Halloween

Tags: Pumpkin, Recipes, Cooking, Halloween,

Now that Halloween is over it’s time to start thinking about what to do with those pumpkins you never got around to carving (Come on…you knew you’d never get around to doing it this year). I had big plans for mine. Last year I carved my pumpkin into a Kansas University Jayhawk. This year, it is still sitting on my countertop.

Here are some pumpkin recipes from The Herb Companion website I am definitely going to try cooking sometime this week:

Pumpkin Soup
Pumpkin Ravioli
Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
Creamy Pumpkin Nog 

If you actually got around to carving your pumpkin this year, here are few other things you can do with your leftover jack-o-lantern:

• Use what's left as compost.
• Bury it in your herb garden.
• Save and store its seeds to plant pumpkins next year.
• Roast its seeds.
• Redecorate it for Thanksgiving.
• Wear it as a hat (okay...maybe not the last tip).
