Cook or Carve?

Before the stalls were completely set this morning, I banged over the Deering Oaks Farmers Market to grab some salsify and pumpkins before heading off to work. Because I couldn’t resist some smoked and dried chipotles and rainbow carrots from Fishbowl, I was left with a smaller pumpkin budget than anticipated. While the goal was carving pumpkins, my ‘look shiny pretty’ instinct drew me into grabbing a Japanese Hokkaido pumpkin. I was told it tends to be sweet in the flesh and now I’m torn between carving it up or cooking it up…

The Obama Action Figure was no help with suggestions—perhaps you could be… So, cook or carve?
