    Just took some pumpkin guts out to my girls and they just loved them. It was like they were eating spaghetti..

    If you have enough pumpkins to store until early winter, I would suggest cutting whole pumpkins into managable pieces and roast them seeds,guts and all for about an hour and serve warm. They will LOVE you even more![​IMG]
