Our CSA share this week included two small pumpkins, so Peeper got it in her head that we were going to make a pie. I was really hesitant because I didn't know where to start, when I stumbled upon a recipe for homemade pumpkin puree. The ingredients are "two small pumpkins."
Okay, fine. Here they are, all roasted, and ready to puree.
While I was in the kitchen, waiting on mini pumpkin pies to cook, Shrike was grilling up some chicken and veggies. I'm usually more of a wine gal myself, but it seemed appropriate to bust out the OctoberFest. The "cheers! click, and drink!" toast was Peeper's idea.
Grilled chicken, onions, peppers and tomato. I also roasted some potatoes and carrots, but they were still cooking when I took these photos.
We even had a little centerpiece on our table. Peeper and Shrike found these beautiful berries in our yard. Any idea what they are?
Apropos of the new season, we got a little chilly on the patio, so we moved inside to finish up dinner and have our pies. I think they were a hit.
