Fall eats

Our giant $5 Thanksgiving pumpkin from the berry barn

We bought a behemoth of a pumpkin from a farm outside of town. They were sold by the each, so I was keen to get the best value. It took me almost an hour to break it down and peel it. I roasted 35% of it, used some of that in a pie and froze the rest. I blanched some and froze it for future use. I made pumpkin spice muffins. I made pumpkin soup. Graham made a really nice pumpkin ratatouille since we ran out of zuchinni. We still have a whole mess of pumpkin. Any ideas?

We ate the seeds, still working on the rest of it
One classic pumpkin product: a pie to bring to dinner

Wheat harvest is over but there is still some nice produce to be had here.

Swedish-style soup made with rainbow chard from the coop. Shout out to Per and Lars-Torsten!
We bought some of this to eat with our soup. I have eaten these 'crackers' since I was a kid, but now when I look closely I see that it is made in the same Leksand factory as the ones I ate in Sweden - awesome!
