Each year, my husband freezes the pumpkin from our Halloween jack-o-lanterns to use in his Thanksgiving pumpkin pies. We like that the pumpkin doesn't go to waste, and using the saved pumpkin provides a nice reminder of Halloween fun during Thanksgiving dinner. One more thing for which to be thankful!
To save the pumpkin, first cut an opening in the top of the pumpkin as usual. Scrape out the stringy pulp and discard, and save the
seeds for toasting. Then cut and scoop the inner wall of the pumpkin as far as you want (leave walls thick enough to maintain the structural integrity of the jack-o-lantern, of course!).

I LOVE Fire Cider! It is my go-to tonic in cold weather months.
WOW this stuff will knock you off your feet! You feel warmth and healing when you drink it!

You are not on Earth to please others. In fact, it's impossible to make everyone else happy. Your own happiness is reliant on your ability to define your own worth, to express your individuality without
