A lonely homegrown pumpkin
It is a little scratched & a tad warty (aren't we all)! , but I plan to do something special with it. My first idea of handmade pasta filled with pumpkin & sage drizzled with butter is a no no.
Mike discovered he was lactose intolerant last year & while he his not as badly affected as other sufferers, butter is a big no no. He has lactose free milk & cream which I find agreeable, the butter substitute however is not good + I am quite unsure where the pasta machine is currently hiding.
If I am to make something from such a handsome pumpkin it has to be perfect. I suspect I shall roast some of it with some spices as a side dish. I could perhaps have some in a curry & I'm sure if I have seen a bread recipe somewhere.
In all honesty I shall probably leave it whole until Rob returns from uni next month, ones thing for sure it wont be turned into soup. Enjoy your day xx
