I saw a melon that looked like a very small watermelon, light green with small stripes. I asked about this melon and was told it was very sweet on the inside and orange in color. I was thinking something like watermelon or cantaloupe. We were invited to dinner with a couple and I thought I would cut up the melon and take it with me. Well, I started cutting about an hour before the dinner and soon realized it wasn’t a melon that I had in mind. It was a type of pumpkin. Well now I had a cut up pumpkin and knew I couldn’t eat it raw and would need to cook it so I could use it. So I had to start cooking it before I left and finished it when I returned back home. This year we will be able to have pumpkin pie, a taste of home, around the time of Thanksgiving.
