Buy Pumpkins After Halloween
This is a tip one of our readers posted and I thought it was a really great idea! Of all the things I am busy buying on clearance after Halloween, pumpkins weren’t one of them. Duhh!! What was I "not" thinking? Thanks for the great idea!
I buy pumpkins the day after Halloween. Cut them in half and bake them in the oven at 375° until tender. Puree them and put them in quart sized freezer bags for pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. Butternut squash is wonderful, too. Cut in half, scrape out seeds, put at little butter, honey, and cinnamon in the hole. Wrap in foil and put in the oven or in the south we put it on the Grill!!!!
