roasted pumpkin

I've only had pumpkin from cans before. Yesterday I bought a baby pumpking for .50 and decided to roast it. I washed the skin very well and cut it into bite size pieces. I seasoned it with olive oil, salt, pepper and cinnamon and roasted it at 425 for 25 minutes. It was very good. I had it with salmon and a spinach/romaine salad with tomato and onion and a vinegrette dressing.

I'll definitly try this again. I think I'll try cutting the pumpking a freezing some and see if that will work for the months when baby pumpkins aren't in the store.

I went to the Dr this morning with my blood pressure readings and she agreed I can go off of all of the meds. After I get results of the blood tests today I may be able to go off the glipizide too. I wanted several tests and she was very happy to order them for me. They took 5 large vials and 2 small vials of blood. I was fasting since I figured they would. I should get results next week - looking forward to seeing where I'm at. Hoping for improvement in several areas.

I finished reading the library book City of Jade by Dennis L. McKiernan. Sci/Fi - good.

    Congrats on the good doctor report and getting off the bp meds!

    The roasted pumpkin sounds delicious!

    Do you enjoy regular fiction? Fannie Flagg just came out with a new book. Her first one was Fried Green Tomatoes. The latest I just read and it was very enjoyable.
