FUN with Food

Pumpkin Soup bowls & Homemade Pumpkin Pie  
(Dinner & Dessert)
I love Fall Festive foods.  One of our favorites is eating soup out of a pumpkin shell.  It is so fun & so easy to do.  We just buy small pumpkin pie pumpkins, clean them out (keep the seeds so you can make roasted pumpkin seeds) & then let your little ones color on the pumpkins if they wish.  This particular day was a crazy busy day for us soooo...I let the kids choose their favorite can of Campbells soup, we heated them on the stove & poured them in our pumpkins.  Boy did they taste good!!  Anything in a fun Halloween pumpkin taste good right?  Of course I am sure many of you have wonderful soup recipes you could use & I would recommend it.

If that wasn't fun enough we decided to rinse out our pumpkins & use them to make homemade pumkin pie.  We found the recipe right on the bottom of our pumpkins.  They turned out yummy.

Don't forget to add the whip cream!!  =)

Would you be willing to share the pumpkin pie recipie that you used... I've been trying all kinds using pumpkins from our garden. I'm always looking for a new/better one on my quest to find the perfect one!
