Step one: Wash your pumpkin.
Step four: scrap out the insides. I used a ice cream scoop and it was super easy.
I guess it is a good thing that learned how to do this because where I live pumpkin is a seasonal item and only around in the fall. So now I am stocked up! Stay tuned, now that I have cooked the pumpkin the kids are asking when I will make pie or bread or something with it!
