Fall Feast - N - Kong Fillers!!

Strangely enough, I have a domestic side.
I have more 'hobbies' than most people.
In fact, I can't imagine not having them!

So, yesterday after I did my chores, 
I brought in a couple pumpkins & went to work. 
Doing what?
Making Pumpkin Puree of course!

This is great not only for pies, 
breads, muffins and such....
but as kong fillers!
Simply fill a kong and 
place it in the freezer!

The dogs LOVE THEM!

One large pumpkin makes 3 pies, 
and fills 6 kongs!

One Large pumpkin
from my garden. 

The birds eat the seeds and skins!
Very little waste and the 
"Windy Hill Fowl Farm and Puppy Ranch"!
Yes, the Turkeys survived TG!!

Bake at 350 degrees 
for about an hour.

A fork should easily pierce the flesh

Remove the outside skin.
 Slice into chunks.

A food processor works great. 
We don't have one, but
potato masher and hand 
mixer work great too!

Alas....we are out of evaporated milk. pie today.  


  1. I need to do that.

    The recipe we used for our last minute pumpkin pie Thanksgiving night (no one brought one to the potluck) only called for a small amount of half and half, no evaporated milk.

  2. Yum. I'll send the Farmer to your house for pumpkin pie. It's his favorite.
