Don't Throw Out that Pumpkin! Don't trash your leftover Halloween pumpkin. Create a delicious meal with it instead! Pumpkins are packed with cancer-fighting beta-carotene,plus other vitamins and minerals. Why let that goodness go to waste? Try a pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread or even pumpkin soup!
If men are so competent, how come you always see signs reading "DANGER - MEN WORKING"?

As I do not use a candle in my Halloween pumpkin I use Christmas mini lights. I prefer to cook the flesh and puree it in the blender and put into pint jars and seal. Then process in the canner and make my own muffins and pumpkin pies with it. Much nicer than tasteless store bought canned pumpkin.
My Nana used to mash her pumpkin and freeze it in bags. Then she just added it to the saucepan and heated through for meals. We often ate pumpkin and potato with kelp at her house as that is how her son liked it and it is nice. Just to add extra nutrients I suppose. That was mostly with whole pieces of potato and pumpkin with the skin on I think.
That is a nice idea, I am assuming you use plain fairy lights.
My girls practised carving pumpkins last week, using the green ones that will not ripen. They don't have pumpkin carving skills because we are Australian. They look cute as garden ornaments at the moment, the frost hasn't come yet.

Yes Grey Pumpkin that is what I believe our North American mini lights are called in Aussie Land, Fairy Lights . Mine have several different patterns that I can use and I have them flashing away inside that pumpkin to the delight of the children who come calling at the door. I have a friend in Australia and she has made me very aware of alot of your terms and recipes. That is where I get most of mine from.
