This year, we picked up our pumpkins from a local farmer’s stand. He had these strange grey/blue pumpkins which he said were good for cooking. I think they are Queensland Blue pumpkins, but am unsure to be honest. We ended up getting two perfect orange ones to carve and a grey/blue one to cook. Lewis carved his into a wolf on a cliff and I stuck to the traditional face.

We then roasted the seeds which were delicious.

For the blueish pumpkin, I chunked it up and roasted the middle to make a puree.

And then we made a delicious pie with the filling! (Lewis did the crust and I did the filling). It came out amazing, as it was the first time I have ever made a pumpkin pie. Kiwi tried pumpkin for the first time and seemed to really enjoy it. I had enough puree left over to make some chocolate pumpkin scones!
