Cushaw and Pumpkin

100_4835

Today along with my many other duties, I will be processing these beautiful cushaw and pumpkin.  There were 3 cushaws altogether but one is already in the steamer.   I plan to steam them enough to cut the peeling off, puree them in the sauce maker and then freeze the puree. You see the pumpkin in the box,  I have never tasted this type of pumpkin.  The lady who gave it to me said she thought they were called cow pumpkins.  She said they were very good for pies.  The cushaw was a gift from my mother-in-law.  Thanks, Judy. 

We had a nice afternoon yesterday.  Hubby needed a haircut so we went over to our friends house who cuts our hair for us.  We shared coffee and an excellent dessert she had made.  Then after he got his hair cut, Hubby and Faye got out their guitars and we enjoyed singing some old hymns.  I so enjoy these times.    The dessert she made was very simple.  4 large apples, 2 containers of store bought crescent rolls.  Quarter the apples and place a quarter in each crescent roll.  Roll the crescent around the apple.  Put into baking dish.  Heat 1 stick butter, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon (to taste) and 1 1/2 cups water until melted.  Pour this mixture over the apple dumplings and bake at 350 about 45 minutes or until cresents are golden brown.  Serve warm topped with whipped creme.  They were delicious.  I guess since I am working up pumpkin today I thought this recipe would work with pumpkin instead of the apples.  I think I would change the sugar to brown sugar, also add a little nutmeg.  Maybe I’ll try that today.  We’ll see.   Sunday is our Thanksgiving dinner at church.  I need to get started making rolls.

The sun is shining here today.  Lots of wind-gusts of about 30 mph.  This made walking a little more difficult.  Hubby went with me though and that made it much more enjoyable.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
