I Pureed my Pumpkin

We decided to paint our pumpkins this year rather than carve them.  I liked this because Savannah could actually do it herself.  She loved it because she could make the whole thing pink.  
About 2 weeks after Halloween I saw our pumpkins just hanging out on the front step and started thinking about all the things you could probably make out of one pumpkin.  I googled it and found out that it is SO EASY so make your own pumpkin puree from a pumpkin!

All I had to do was 1.Wash the pumpkin.  2. Put the entire pumpkin in a 350 degree oven for about 2 hours. 3. Stab it with a knife to make sure it was soft and done.  4. Cut chunks off of it (and slice off the seeds) and throw it in the Ninja.  

I ended up with about 8 cups of pumpkin.  Thats about 6 cans of pumpkin.  I used half of it that day to make pumpkin bread, muffins, and pumpkin butter (after all, it was close to thanksgiving).  The rest I poured into muffin tins and froze.
