Pumpkin Slime

I bought a pumpkin the other day and wanted to cook it up to make all sorts of pumpkin treats that I have been dreaming about: soup, muffins, waffles, bread. I let Calvin play in the slime and he had a blast. He sat there for at least 20 minutes squishing away, and pounding the spoon I gave him into the pumpkin and table. This has to be a new record for him; he seems to go from one thing to the next. After it was cooked I pureed a batch and then I tasted it, surprise, it didn’t taste like anything. Bummer, apparently I bought a jack-o-lantern pumpkin and those aren’t for eating. Who knew? So I guess enjoying a variety of pumpkin treats will start next week, I am glad it wasn’t too pricey.

I guess it wasn’t my day for being in the kitchen as I also broke my square Pyrex dish (I was so bummed because I use it a lot). I was thankful Calvin was napping at the time, so I didn’t have to worry about him while I cleaned it up. Let’s hope today isn’t filled with as many problems.

I made pumpkin puree for the first time this year! It was a bit stressful for me since all the kiddo's were gathered around! I'll have to remember to let them play in the slime. Brilliant!
