My plans are pumpkin hummus, pumpkin cheesecake and some Thai spiced pumpkin and coconut fritters.
Might make soup too if there's enough pumpkin!

Just to add there are carving pumpkins and eating pumpkins.
If you have bought a GIANT pumpkin it it probably not for eating.

The carving ones are a bit watery, but edible. Roasting the flesh first takes a lot of the moisture out.
Morrison's have some blue skinned variety and a dark green knobbly one that looks a bit like marina Di choggia so I bought a few of those to store for eating rather than carving. The flesh from these is much nicer.

Soup the Delia way. Roast the pumpkin first then serve the soup with chunks of Gruyere cheese and croutons stirred though, bloody delicious.

The carving ones aren’t really any good for using in cooking, i always find 😷 You need an β€˜eating’ pumpkin or a tin of pumpkin purΓ©e πŸŽƒ

I always make a spiced pumpkin soup. This recipe is good

Always a pumpkin pie or 4 as well

I've made pumpkin loaf (several different kinds) and will be making pumpkin pie on Tuesday. I think butternut squash flesh gives a better colour, but pumpkins are ok even the carving ones, if you roast and then squeeze it in some muslin to dry it out.
