Pumpkin in January?

I know it sounds strange, but we still have 3 pumpkins that have sat outside since October and are still good.  Since I finally had time at home all day today (sick little ones) I decided it was time to cook them up rather than toss them.  So I cut them in half, scooped out the guts, and am baking the pumpkin meat right now.  Our 6 and 8 year old are sorting out the seeds for me so we can roast them.  They are quite excited that mom is finally doing something with their pumpkins from the patch!  They were hoping for pumpkin pie but I think I have talked them into pumpkin muffins or pancakes instead (paleo of course).  I mentioned Pumpkin soup and they thought I had gone crazy.  I 'll keep you posted on how the pumpkin caper goes!

 Pumpkin cut and ready to be cleaned out.

 My helpers, seperating the seeds from the pulp.

 This is so much fun!
