Pumpkin!

This post has been a long time coming – I’ve been short on time and energy, but this evening I finally feel something approaching motivated.

So, about three weeks ago now, Kate bought me a present. This pumpkin:

It’s a very pretty pumpkin, is it not? Tasty looking! Well it was! It made me three days’ worth of gorgeous pumpkin curry, some delicious salted, honeyed, chill seeds for snacking on and a big jar of sweet, cinnamon pumpkin puree for which I’m searching for inspirational recipes – suggestions welcome!

1) Pumpkin curry
