31 Days of Samhain: Day 17: KWW: Pumpkin

It's another week of Kitchen Witchin Wednesdays, make sure to swing by Emberlyn's Blog.  

One can't think of fall without thinking about changing leaves and pumpkins, We know to make pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin pie, but what else do we use pumpkins for?? Other than decorations. Don't gimmie those looks O_o. Anywoo in Jamaica we put pumpkin in our soups to help thicken them up, you can make roast pumpkin and all kinds of things. One of my newest recipes, comes from a Kindle freebie and I can't wait to get more pumpkin to try out all the recipes. Here's my fave so far:
