While Jonathan and I were at the piata* a couple weeks ago, we walked by a lady selling bags of fresh, already-shredded pumpkin. Each bag was 1 kilogram (about 2 pounds) and cost a whopping 2 lei - around 60 cents. We bought all that she had shredded, which was about 12 pounds, and brought it home to freeze. (Did I mention that it's already shredded?!?) All I have to do is thaw a bag, pop it in the blender with a few other ingredients, and voila! - a fresh, pumpkin pie all ready to be baked!

Okay, so I have to make a crust, too. But the recipe I use makes enough for 3 crusts, so I often have those in the freezer, too. :) We'll be able to eat pumpkin for quite a while! Yum!!
