October Pumpkin Pot

Raven Higheagle


If you are like me then your favorite holiday is Halloween. I love everything about Halloween. decorating the house, dressing up for when the kids come trick-or-treating and giving out the goodies. I always buy more pumpkins than I can carve. I just hate them going to waste, and I don't really like pumpkin pie. This recipe is for when I get too many pumpkins
