Pumpkin-mania continues!

This year on Halloween a straw-filled scarecrow guarding a large pumpkin greeted our little visitors. Once the trick-or-treating was over I put the pumpkin to a far better use than usual. So far this pumpkin has allowed me to try out three excellent new recipes:

Pumpkin Bread on page 774 of Joy of Cooking
The flavour was fantastic thanks to cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves, walnuts and raisins.

Curried Pumpkin Soup on page 55 of Anne Lindsay’s Lighthearted Everyday Cooking
Cremini mushrooms, curry powder, honey and nutmeg lead to a smooth delicious dish. The mushrooms added an unexpected flair.

Pumpkin Spice Cake on page 213 of Anne Lindsay’s Light Kitchen
Buttermilk, grated orange rind, cinnamon, raisins combine to create a tasty Bundt cake.

I’ve used about half of the pumpkin. I guess that’s three more recipes to find. Any ideas?
