They had loads in the one by me and they where huge ones and small ones, everyone had one or more in their trolleys! I managed to squeeze mine into the bag for life and then carried it to the car :))

Ooooo I love pumpkin :)
Will be definetly picking one of those up today and making some of my yummy soup with it aswell as carving out a cool face.
I love the idea of a photo shoot though, might just have to get Reggie modelling too :))

Pumpkin soup.....syn free!
Ideal for Halloween.....Don't waste the pumpkin when * can use it for a lovely soup.

Nice and warming with a touch of curry spice.
If prepared with vegetable stock it will be Suitable for Vegetarians.

400g of pumpkin flesh, cut into cubes
1 large onion, chopped
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 flat teaspoon of curry powder, mild or medium strength
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 pints of chicken or vegetable stock

Cut up all the ingredients into small chunks, add the stock and simmer on a medium light for 30-40 minutes or until everything is soft.
Transfer to a blender to make into a thick hearty soup

Hehehe I have been in again today and noticed the huge display of them they had yesterday is now very low compared to yesterday where they were piled high :)
So thanks for making this thread and reminding me to get myself one.

Bought mine last night, along with a load of cut price veggies. Thought I only paid 50p for it though, I'll have to check my receipt.
