Happy Halloween!

Ed and I had our first attempt at carving a pumpkin - never too old huh? It just wasnt really done when we were kids, and I learned yesterday that the Brits used to carve turnips instead of pumpkins!

Just gone 5pm, we're armed with more chocolate than cadburys and just had the first trick or treaters, aged about 5 years old.. nearly ended in tears tho as one little boy realised he didnt get any sweets and came back with his chin wobbling..

..........its going to be a long night!
These pumpkins could be in a magazine! They are literally perfect! And this is your first time carving pumpkins? You have mad skills.

Top job! They are amazing. We've only had one lot so far - very sweet tiny tots with their parents - but I bet we don't get any more - they don't seem to go in for it in a big way here.

@blightygal - well you shouldn't have eaten it all should you?!
October 31st, 2010

Ha ha love the commentary! Brilliant job on the carving and the shot!

I like the one on the right. It's a bit funny-looking.

I was considering carving my pumpkin and take a pic before eating it but decided instead to get straight into turning it into a casserole. You did well to carve as the skin is bloody tough eh? Love what you did with these and I hope you cooked them afterwards!
October 31st, 2010  
great pumpkins! I love the scar and star eyes! I may have to do tha next year. I plan on taking a picture of mine tonight!
October 31st, 2010  
@cindy Sadly we dont like the taste.. and even though I love pumpkin seeds, I forgot about them in the oven and they burnt.. hope you had more success!!
October 31st, 2010  
@blightygal I actually remembered my roast pumpkin seeds with salt, paprika and garlic seasoning and they turned out to be delicious. I still have some left for a snack.
October 31st, 2010  
@cindy oh yum! Great idea with the paprika and garlic... next year!
October 31st, 2010
