Pumpkin Bread

Today I finally decided to use the information from this post to put to use the cute little pumpkin that had been sitting on my kitchen table for weeks. I don't have any pictures because I left my camera at my parent's house last week. I seeded the pumpkin and set the seeds out to dry overnight. I plan on making sugared pumpkin seeds with them tomorrow. Yum! Then, I cut the pumpkin in half, cleaned out all of that stringy stuff with an ice cream scoop, and put both pieces in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees. When the pumpkin had been cooked I used a tablespoon to scoop out all the cooked pumpkin. I had to put it in the blender to puree it. I ended up with about 4 cups of pumpkin puree! Then I found this recipe for pumpkin bread using my homemade pumpkin puree. It came out of the oven just a little while ago. It's pretty tasty if I do say so myself! Let me know if you try this. It was a lot of fun!
