Regardless of your carving skills, what do you do with the pumpkin flesh? I'd love to know! I've heard a lot about American Pumpkin Pie so will try and track down a recipe for that (anyone got a recommendation for me?) but check back tomorrow and I'll have a pumpkin muffin recipe for you.
And don't forget to save the seeds! Keep a few back for re-sowing next year (wash, dry and store in dry place) and eat the rest! Try this yummy way of cooking them: Chilli Lime Roasted Pumpkin Seeds from Roamyourwayhome, one of the members on Jamie Oliver's food website. I think these would make great grown up Hallowe'en snacks!
