Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars - Margaret Ullrich

Ah, yes... Halloween. It's loads of fun to carve a pumpkin. But now it's November and folks are stuck with a huge hunk of raw pumpkin. Food prices being what they are, nobody wants to just throw food away.

I received a few e mails asking if I had a recipe. Here's an old favorite. Hope you enjoy it, too.
