Baked Pumpkin

Baked PumpkinAm I ever tired of baking? Well, the answer is simply ‘NEVER’. I just need someone to munch on and I’m a happy bird! 🙂 Well.. having someone to attack the plate usually isn’t a the only task I’ve to worry about is cooking/baking. 😉

I’ve always baked cakes and cupcakes..and it was time I decided that I needed to bake a savory dish..something very usual but with a twist of baking.

And this is what sounded perfect. A flavourful and easy side dish. Baked Pumpkin.
