I haven't posted a Tasty Tuesday in awhile. I've been so busy I've been neglecting my poor blog.
I had bought 3 pumpkins for Halloween 1 Jack-O-Lantern and 2 pie pumpkins. I let the kids paint the pie pumpkins. Last year I didn't know what to do with the pumpkins after Halloween so I just threw them away.
This year I decided to try making something with them. I HATE to waste anything so I figured I'd give it a try. I havent done anything w/ the Jack-O-Lantern yet but I got online and figured out how to cook up the pie pumpkins.
Now, something you all should know, I am a terrible baker! I can cook almost anything but when it comes to baking, I burn brownies out of the box. I just can't do it.
In this post I'll show you how to cook the pumpkin to get it ready to use in any recipe and then I'll give you the recipe for the pumpkin roll I made last night. I'm making a pumking pie tonight, then pumpkin bread, then pumpkin cake...Lets just say we'll be tired of eating pumpkin by the end of the week! But I will have good recipes for a months worth of Tasty Tuesdays!
So I took pictures of each step to show you exactly how it looks. I'm a picture kind of person. It's easier to understand if there's pics :)
Cooking the pumpkin:
I used Gages pumpkin first. Don't mind the marks all over it! He colored it :)
