ABC Wednesday--Q is for 'Querent'

Actually, the 'querent' is not in this photo. The querent took it, since the word means, 'one who asks a question' (another 'q'). I asked the lady selling this enormous pumpkin how much the entire one weighed. "About 25 kilos," she answered, which is about 55 pounds.

One of these wedges, which baked, will make about 3-4 pumpkin pies. I make mine from scratch this way.

I did not know that word. Thank you!

Mara said...

Funny, you hardly ever get to see the inside of a pumpkin: only the outside.
I'd never heard of the word querent before, now I know a new word, thank you.

Very clever and now I have learned another new word. That is an enormous pumpkin. I have never made a pumpkin pie from scratch. Good for you.

Jacob said...

That's amazing. I'll bet your pumpkin pies are tasty!

Gaelyn said...

That's one Great Pumpkin.
Question: what time is pie being served?

Thérèse said...

One wedge at a time... What a great idea! But it's not enough to reconcile me with pumpkin pies. Lol

Alexa said...

Thanks for teaching me a new word, Bibi! I use the already-spiced, from-the-can pumpkin filling. Does that make me a lazy ______?

S said...

Without a Question, that is a huge pumpkin. I bet your pies taste yummy!

Did you say pumpkin pie with fresh whipping cream?!

Ohmigosh! What a lovely picture! That's a lot of pumpkin. I'll bet your pie is superb!

Tash said...

A quier quatch you found there.
And what incredible quinnets of pumpkin! Questionable use of q's on my part; but I bet that your pumpkin is unquestionably delicious.

This makes me hungry for pumpkin soup which I seem to remember you are not so keen on. Glorious colours. I visited Lily's Long Island blog - loved that peaceful scene. Thanks for that, Bibi - just what I needed today and didn't have to make the climb to the monastery to get it!

You mean they don't come from the grocer's freezer?

Lily Hydrangea said...

wow! you bake your own pumpkin pies right from the pumpkin? I get mine from a can-the pumpkin that is! yours must be absolutely delicious.
I've never seen a pumpkin with skin like that either.
great photo Bibi.

I discovered your blog today as my son is about to arrive in Belgrade on business. We visited 2 years ago and loved the market that you have photographed several times. The photo of the brooms--we bought a rolling pin from that vendor.

Maybe you could teach a class in Belgrade on pie baking? Our Serbian 'daughter' needs to learn to make American pies!

You make lovely pies AND lovely photos! I love this shot for its perfect exposure, atmosphere, and the bright shock of pumpkin color.
