Homemade pumpkin puree

 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

Cut the pumpkin in half. Remove the seeds with a metal spoon or ice cream scoop works very well.
Save the seeds for roasting!!! 
They’re easy to roast..Wipe them off with a paper towel then place in a single layer on a cookie sheet..Roasting them for a short time like 15 min. at 160 degrees would be better  because, it helps to preserve their healthy oils. That 's how my dad used to do it...delicious, healthy and fun.

Cut the pumpkin into smaller pieces and peel. Add to the boiling water and cook for about 25-30 minutes, until the flesh is tender. Puree the pumpkin in a food processor or blender.
If you have more puree than necessary, freeze the rest of it for future use.
Hmmmm... now my home smells pumpkin :D
Ready to use for pumpkin pie, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, waffles, pudding, pumpkin soup which I love it :)and more...

Here is the pumpkin bread recipe I shared earlier.

Happy Autumn

The Laziest Mackerel Recipe :) YUM!

Simple Baked Mackerel

Season the fish basic salt and peper, pour lemon juice all over it and place a bit of butter on each mackerel. (Or just drizzle with olive oil). This is the laziest way ever and this recipe is what I use most often when cooking fish. ...
It basically cooks itself..A huge bonus!!
We can eat fish more often if cooking it simple:)

Tiny hard bones that make eating them difficult. Aria doesn't like these kind of fishes ..Neither do I.
After cooked I just pulled them right out and served with lemon slices and parsley..
Mmmmmmm..Fall is the best season for some fish!
I love fish! Almost any kind including this :)And I love watch the ocean/sea..The next post would be about a gift for me from my sister. She is a talented artist! Love her, love my family!
Thanks all of you guys for visiting my blog and your kindly comments!

Hmmm...I smell pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger..Now it's time to make my home smell like fall!!
Yes, finally I'm in the mood for autumn:) Happy Autumn!
