We grew pumpkins in our garden this year. I didn’t get a lot, but enough to keep me busy with some pumpkin recipes this winter.
These are sugar pie pumpkins so they don’t grow as big as some of the larger varieties.
I cooked one up the other day. I sliced it in half with a big knife and set it on a cookie sheet to place in the oven to bake. But before that final step, I grabbed the stem and popped it off and tossed it to Presley.
You know puppies, they are constantly looked for something to get their teeth on at this age. Please know I did this while supervising him as I didn’t want him eating it or become a choking hazard. I just let him “shred” it into pieces to keep him busy. I threw the remainder of the stem away before it got to small and he was tempted to eat it, then swept up the mess.
And yes, he did make a mess, but it was a nice “new” chew toy to keep him busy for a bit. 😉
