I love Halloween -- love love love it. Every year, I end up with leftover (uncarved) pumpkins that I hate to throw away. So I started making them into pumpkin pies, which I freeze and serve at Thanksgiving.

More recently, I've begun buying pumpkin pie pumpkins to display for Halloween, since they're a bit sweeter and make better pies. Non-pie pumpkins make a great soup, though....
