So for those of you who were wondering how the house looks now with it's new coat of stain, here you go...that hubby of mine does nice work, doesn't he?I'd take a picture of the back so you could see the deck and rails that Sheri and I slaved away on, but it's raining outside today...yuck. Maybe this weekend, if you're still interested!
So anyway, what are Noah and I up to on this rainy Friday? Well, we had planned to go out running various errands that I have so aptly been procrastinating doing. BUT, then it started raining. And you know what? I'd really rather be home than running around in the rain. So I started thinking,"What could we do here?" DUH...plenty! I saw these guys, who have been sitting and taunting me for 2 weeks now...I decided it was time to make the Pumpkin Puree I've been dreaming about since I saw it on The Pioneer Woman's website. I decided to tackle the small orange pumpkins first. We cut them up, scooped out the seeds and stringy stuff, and roasted them...Then we scooped the flesh out of the shells and put it in the food processor so Noah could puree it. Really, he could care less about the actual puree-ing. He just wants to push the buttons and watch it spin...We scooped 1 cup of vitamin-filled pumpkin into each bag, sealed 'em up and labeled 'em. I can't wait to pull these out in the dead of winter to do some festive baking!Of course, we rinsed the seeds and now they are drying out. Tomorrow we will make Pepitas!!! The kiddos are in for a treat! And I still have those 3 big pie pumpkins in the picture as well as our 7 jack-o-lantern pumpkins that we never got to carve (whoops!). I see many pepitas and much more pumpkin puree on the horizon!!!
Have a great day today!!!
