Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Loretta recalls that her mother often used fresh pumpkin from the garden or butternut squash instead of pumpkin. Cut pumpkin in large pieces with shell on. Steam cook on low heat with a little water until soft. Scoop out of shell. To make it smooth put in blender with some of the milk. She often froze pumpkin or butternut squash to use in her pies.
