Katherine grew pumpkins and gave us several. OtherJen is coming for lunch. I have a bowl of really good chicken stock in the fridge.

Contiguity is all. I decided to make pumpkin soup.

As I tend to when I haven't done a thing before, I scouted internet recipes and was swiftly bored by "peel and chunk your pumpkin"-type instructions. I've peeled butternut squash before, and it's no fun at all. So I just cut the thing in half with my trusty German ten-inch (Japanese blades are great, but sometimes I just want weight), scooped out all the seeds with a teaspoon, massaged flesh and rind with olive oil and laid both halves cut face down on a baking tray. Into a medium-hot oven for an hour, and they looked like this:

I left them overnight to cool, and this morning I figured I'd be scraping roast flesh out of the skins with another teaspoon.

Not so much.

I went to lift one half off the tray, and - well. This is what they did.

Yay pumpkin. Yay me.
