Consuming Cute Little Pumpkins

Loosely following a recipe that came in one of my CSA's newletters, I baked a little pumpkin (acquired from the CSA, of course) the other night (and another one tonight), and discovered that little pumpkins are easy and delicious, and a better for me than pumpkin pie. Basically, I took the little pumpkin (about the size of my fist), scooped it out like one does for a jack-o-latern, threw a bit of pumpkin pie spices inside, a tiny bit of salt, chopped up apple (idea for the recipe addition courtesy of hrj, if I recall correctly), some brown sugar and a slice of butter, popped the lid back on, wrapped it in tinfoil (because there was also a hole in the side, due to strategic removal of icky bits), and baked it for about an hour at 375.

Yum! And I'm sure it counts for at least two servings of fruits/vegetables, probably more... (and I still have four left -- next year I won't give away any of my pumpkins!)

If you get tired of the sweet version, try one with cheese & breadcrumbs inside. Baked stuffed pumpkin with cheese & onions has been my traditional Thanksgiving entree for years.

Get tired of the sweet version?!?!?? Hmm. I suppose I could eat two pumpkins in one day, a sweet and a savory...

Cool, isn't it? I'm going to try to collect one of each kind of dragon -- now that I have found the fan sites I don't need to bother my LJ friends (or worry that I'll kill them by accident :-) and I'm curious to see how many different ones there are, and what they are.
