I'm really enjoying fall this year. This is the first time in a long time that I carved a pumpkin early. Normally I do it right before Halloween. I picked a pumpkin a few weeks back when I went apple picking. It was only $3 for a big pumpkin. If you go to the grocery store you pay over two times as much for a half rotten one. So $3 is a great deal. I'll be traveling up to Michigan soon so I hope to grab one or two more pumpkins to carve right before Halloween.
So I made a rough sketch of what I wanted my pumpkin to look like:
He's a little creepy huh? Well I unfortunately didn't have an erasable marker so I couldn't sketch onto the pumpkin itself so I decided to free-hand cut the entire thing (after a glass of wine). So...It didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted it to because I made a few mistakes but it's kinda close:
I put it in the window to scare people away:
It must have worked because no one rang my doorbell all night! Okay...it's rare that anyone ever rings my doorbell but still...
This little pumpkin has so many seeds. So of course I had to roast them. I posted this recipe last year. This year I used real butter. They turned out really tasty so I recommend using butter.
Look, I made a scary face in the uncooked seeds:
So, as always the seeds turned out delicious. Next time you roast pumpkin seeds use this recipe!
