Smashing Pumpkins

Today we smashed a pumpkin open on our driveway.


Because it was easier than trying to cut it.

I typically don't have issues cutting open or cutting up squashes of any sort, but this little pie pumpkin was not cooperating.

Why are we opening a pie pumpkin?

Not to make pie, because I don't like pumpkin pie.

To make chili.

Veggie chili.

We love it around here.  We keep some in the fridge for after school snacks and when we need a single dinner for a person.  We eat it plain or on noodles.  We eat it in a Frito bag like a walking taco.  On a potato or hot dog.  Try some chili tacos.  Yup.  We went there.

It's just plain delicious, filling and healthy--minus some of our not so healthy add ins!
