Pumpkin Power

There's a lot more fun to be had with pumpkins than carving them into jack-o'-lanterns. In my house, pumpkins do double duty: I use them first as dinner-table centerpieces, and then turn them into edibles. I like to make a big batch of pumpkin (or other squash) soup, and use the shell itself as the soup tureen. Just pop the pumpkin in the oven while you're making the soup (directions are below). And when the soup is gone, you can scrape the sides of the pumpkin bowl and enjoy what's left; nothing goes to waste.
