How to cook home grown pumpkin?

Last Halloween we carved pumpkins and one seed found its way into the yard. It started growing so we just let it go to see what would happen. Now we have several large pumpkins and we dont know what to do with them. So i want to eat them. Does anyone know any good recipes using real pumpkin? please give ingredients and instructions. I do not want these pumpkins to go to waste and its too early to carve them. I appreciate any input thanks.

    Garden fresh home grown pumpkin:

    Cut in half and remove seeds. Place in large baking pan, cut side down, with 1 cup water. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for approximately 1 1/2 hours until done. Remove the meat of pumpkin from shell. (Scoop out or cut in strips and peal.) This is delicious to eat as is. You can freeze in ziplock bags for future use in favorite recipes. 1 c. sugar (white or brown) 2 eggs, beat 1 c. evaporated milk 2 tbsp. tapioca 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice 1/2 tsp. salt
    Mix all ingredients well. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes; reduce temperature 325 degrees and bake approximately 45 minutes (until knife comes out clean
