It all began in the pumpkin patch. Pumpkins almost as far as the eye could see….four came home with us.
The staging area for the pumpkin carving rumpus, which took place Sunday afternoon, beginning the countdown to Hallowe’en.
Pumpkins of this size and heft yield quite a lot of seeds. I was the official roaster of seeds while the younger generation did the Jack-o-Lantern carving.

SNL recently had a pretty funny parody of pumpkin spiced everything that shows up this time of year.
Ah, I did catch that. It was funny. And the pumpkin expansion all over seems even more over the top this year.

Looks so fun, what a great halloween tradition!
It looks like a lovely day was had by all! My favorite pumpkin recipe: http://doriegreenspan.com/2008/09/pumpkin-packed-with-bread-and-cheese-a-recipe-in-progress.html
Very intriguing! Would that I had two ovens, I would try this on Thanksgiving day. Maybe it would be a good add for the day after Thanksgiving. I once or twice made a soup in a pumpkin but the pumpkin didn’t really get eaten like it would in this dish.
