Yesterday, (Friday) we had the 3rd Annual Pumpkin Bash and subsequent cutting up of my giant pumpkin, Kong. We started with the kids and then the adults. Everybody got to help bust it up. Then we cut it up and gave it away to all. How could Kong become 561 pies or gallons of pumpkin soup! 561 pies? The answer is yes! Take 421 pounds x 16 oz =6736 oz of pumpkin. Now divide the 6736 oz of pumpkin by 12 oz (it takes 1.5 cups of pumpkin per pie) and you get 561 pies! And I got the seeds for future little Kongs! Here are some pics..
