We recently read a book about growing pumpkins and making pumpkin soup and decided to make our own! It was a great success and EVERYONE liked it!* What a great way to get some veggies into us and keep warm on a cold day. We even saved some seeds to grow in the school veggie garden so we can do the same again next winter.
*Recipe below, as requested!
