Fifth Day of Christmas Gift

Today I am reluctantly tossing out my pumpkins from Halloween and Thanksgiving, all two dozen-plus, to make room for Christmas decorations.

Before I do, I’m going to cut them open and take out some of the seeds to try and save them for planting next year. Then I’ll roast the pulp of those that are still fresh enough and use it in my holiday baking. It’s going to be a busy day!

Before I destroyed the beauties, I used them as photo props for my homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice. It will make a sweet addition to any baking-themed basket gift or the perfect little stocking stuffer for the chef in your life.

On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Homemade Kahlua Liqueur
Lemon-Sugar Hand Scrub
Cranberry Citrus Vodka
