I've often bought cans of pumpkin at the grocery store. You know the ones - they are 15-16 oz. and contain about 2 cups of the yummy stuff. I've even bought several at a time to stock up - like five pounds' worth for going into fall. Well, last night my DH brought home 2 commercial size cans of pumpkin for me to use. Yes, two HUGE cans, each 6 lbs. and 10 oz. I now have over thirteen POUNDS of pumpkin to work into our menu plan! Wow!! And that's on top of about 14 cups of fresh pumpkin that I have in my freezer. I gave got to start cookin' some pumpkin!!!
So, how about some ideas from out there? I already plan to make a pumpkin pie (or two) for Easter dinner. Once I've opened the can, I really need to try and use it all before it goes bad. I can make some pumpkin scones or rolls for Easter, and some pumpkin muffins for breakfast the next morning. Help me get creative here! Does anyone have a main dish recipe that calls for canned pumpkin? Or a particularly good dessert or tasty bread?
I don't want to see this pumpkin go to waste! Help me out, fellow bloggers!!! :-)
