ROASTED PUMPKINS ~ ~ ~

Fresh pumpkin pies ~ that's what Sonny will be making with these for Thanksgiving dinner!  Sonny ~ not me!!  He bakes halved pie pumpkins ~ puts it all in the Quisinart ~ measures it out into the amount needed for a pie ~ and seals it into packages with his vacuum sealer!!!  Now, he's all ready for his holiday pie baking!!  He thinks I'm making fun of him, but I'm not!!  If I were doing it, there are cans of pumpkin on the grocery store shelf that work  swell for me!!!!  He loves doing it and that makes us both happy!!  Just thought I would share what the mister is up to now!

We had a fun week last week ~ went to the Homebuilders Auxiliary Auction where we earned close to $7000 for our needy families at Christmas!  It never ceases to amaze me how people in our building industry and related businesses, open their hearts and checkbooks for this cause!  Many of us have really had an awakening in this bumpy economy over the past couple of years so it's wonderful to see this outpouring of generosity!  And the good news is that business is picking up and I couldn't be more grateful!

Today, a little shopping and an oil change are on my agenda ~ it's really windy here today ~ hope I don't blow away!  For those who know me, I think I'm safe!!!!  Have a good day!  Hook-in pictures and Woolley Fox pictures to follow ~ soon!!

Homemade pumpkin pie - yum! I'm with you, though. I buy it by the can for my pumpkin rolls.
How generous of the Home Builders group. There are so many people in need. I'm glad business is picking up. Hopefully it is a sign that the entire economy will do better.
I'd love to see lots of pics from your trip to the Wooley Fox!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and the old guy :)
Hugs :)

I'm impressed with your husbands efforts. I'm afraid I would go straight for the canned stuffed as well.
Its amazing how many people dig deeper into their pockets when times are tough. Just goes to show that there are still lots of good people out there - despite what you hear on the news.

I used to spend hours cutting up and scooping out pumpkin but Sonny's method sounds much easier. I've still got two pumpkins, pre-Halloween, and I'm thinking about sacrificing them for the seeds to roast. Pie is no longer an option for me.

Alice,
Glad to know the Wooley Fox photos are on their way. Am looking forward to enjoying what you girls were up to during your annual visit.

I am with you on pumpkin pie. The cans work just as well and don't heat up my kitchen as much as roasting all those halves would.

You and your sweetie have a great Thanksgiving.

Wow...I am lazy too, I buy canned pumpkin. You are part of an amazing generous group. I can't wait for the photos I have been checking in waiting for you to post them.
