I wasn't going to carve the Pumpkins this year. The kids are teenagers and weren't too interested so I figured I'd just enjoy having pumpkins on the porch, not Jack-O-Lanterns. No problem, they'd look autumn-ish all fall and the they serve as appropriate decorations until Thanksgiving.
BUT I just couldn't let them be. We didn't pull down any of our typical Halloween decor this year, no 4ft dancing ghosts, no egg crate spiders, no Mr. Bones the skeleton made out of Milk Cartons. So, at 5:00 on Halloween night - I decided to carve.
I had to do something cute, right? So I made vegetarian Jacks. One is eating an apple and one is munching carrots between his toothless gums. I'm pleased.
They look like this:
So, as I was carving, I smelled the pumpkin and realized I wanted to EAT something pumpkin, so I prodded around the internet and came across this yummy looking treat.
I haven't tried this recipe but I thought I'd post it anyway. I will buy the ingredients next week and give it a go.
