The Weekend Challenge 3!
We're going to go Iron Chef-style this week, with a theme ingredient: PUMPKIN!
Who knew I would have such ulterier motives when I posted about pumpkins? But let's face it, pumpkins really are versatile. Anything you can do with just about any other squash, you can do with pumpkins. Need I list off all the options? Of course not. You're smart people. Plus, I already listed them off in my previous post. If you run out of options, just ask yourself: what can I cook with yellow squash? Or zucchini? Or butternut squash? Then just use pumpkin instead and see how it goes.
Let your imagination run wild. And if your imagination gets eaten by a bear in the wild, then feel free to post your favorite pumpkin pie recipe. I'm always on the lookout for good pumpkin pie recipes. But I will award bonus points (for whatever they're worth) to anything that goes exotic. The more exotic, the more imaginary bonus points I will award. And yes, pumpkin seeds are fair game too.
You have until Monday morning to come up with something and post it to my comments area. You can use any cooking method out there, or you can even go raw. Actually, with pumpkins, I don't think I would recommend going raw, but hey, it's your choice. You have three days, people! Allez Cuisine!
