Pumpkin/Winter Squash Challenge - 2016

Have you grown pumpkins? Bought lots of canned Pumpkin? Or just like Pumpkins in general?

'Tis the season for a Challenge and Pumpkins. Deadline for recipes and pictures will be 10/31/2016...that's right Halloween!

You can use canned pumpkin or start from a whole pumpkin, pumpkin must be the featured star of your recipe. Sweet or savory, let's do what we do best and have fun!

If you can incorporate a pumpkin themed centerpiece into your final picture, go for it.

On Edit: Other types of Winter Squash have been requested, we will add them to the challenge.

I'm in! These challenges are a lot of fun. And I love pumpkin. Can't wait to see what people come up with.

I see if there is any pumpkins this year, since we dont celebrate Halloween with pumpkin, we do it with candles on the graves instead.

I am tentatively in. I am moving to a new place on 10/1. This could work two ways, I could be energized by the new kitchen, or just exhausted from the process.

Either way I plan to buy a pumpkin this year. I have some terrible but lovely thoughts as far as how ground up pumpkin seeds could be used in baking. Obvious for muffins, but I think they are starchy enough that one could, if one had such a wild idea, add them to pie dough. And pumpkin pie seems well within my wheelhouse, and in particular speaks to my Beloved Wife's penchant for anything cinnamon and cumin heavy.

Cheers,

TBS

We don't like pumpkin, can we use some type of squash, like butternut or acorn?

I don't see why not, we'll open it up a bit more and have a winter squash challenge.

I'll leave that up to Fiona, though it is a Pumpkin challenge, I mean I have an acorn squash in the fridge right now, I'll bake it with some butter and garlic. If we open it up to all squashes, I'll contribute my spaghetti squash muffin recipe, and totally CRUSH IT ;) (yeah I know it sounds completely counter intuitive, why would a reasonable person make a muffin out of that kind of squash, well we aren't reasonable people here...)

Butternut squash pasta, with chicken Marsala filling. Craig will post the recipe, as he came up with the filling and typed it all out. It was REALLY good.
