Homemade Pumpkin Pie Puree

Nothing more daunting that looking at a Pumpkin and thinking.. Yes.. I can do this! 
Now with that being "thought and never done" I decided to do it... today ... 30 minutes ago if you will.   It's a relatively quick process too.  Who would have known.

Pumpkin... check!   Sharpish knife... check!  Pot to steam the pumpkin in... Check! Oster handheld puree'erer thinga ma bob.  Check!

Sitting pretty waiting to be steamed..

Silent screams can be heard from pumpkins everywhere that are viewing this..

mmm steamed pumpkin guts

pureed pumpkin guts

Spiced Pumpkin guts

One word of warning. No matter HOW tempting it is. Don't stick your finger into hot pumpkin guts. 
( what.. .I couldn't resist and didn't have a spoon, sadly.. lesson learned but oh so yummy!!  )

Now once it's cooled part can go into the frig for tomorrows pie baking and the rest will be sealed in freezer containers for later use. :) 

Thanks for peeking!!!

Dragging, lagging and cave dwelling

I have pretty much fallen off the face of blog posting, the dachshund forum I once participated in with glee and life for the most part other than Facebook.  Call it the lack of sunshine, trying to figure out what path to take next as things haven't been the greatest, life getting in the way, a touch of depression and missing Kai a lot lately as I have come to realize this will be a Kai'less Christmas that's coming up.  Meh..

But I wanted to say hello world, we're still alive and kicking.  The furbabies are good and two were nice enough to give me a decent photo a few moments ago so they could say hello too.We will try to be a little more "postie" and less absent.



Hope everyone that sees this is doing well!!!   :)
