Happy Halloween! [INSERT GHOST NOISES]
It's going to be a really creepy Halloween... more on that Monday when I share photos of me and Andrew in our costumes.
For now, behold our pumpkin.
Sorry there aren't more photos, but I was busy sorting the seeds from the guts while Andrew emptied that sucker out. You can't really tell from the photo but this was quite a warty and ugly pumpkin. Perfect for a witchkin. (Just made that up. Did you like it?)
Of course we roasted the seeds. We also roasted the seeds from a butternut squash we had for dinner the other night. Inspired by Andrew's sister's boyfriend (follow me?), who is a chef, we went gourmet. We divided the seeds into four batches and ended up with the following delicious combinations (combinations IS a word, stupid spellcheck! Gosh!):
*Traditional salt and butter (made with sea salt for kicks)
*Curry and Chile Powder (these were gone in about ten minutes)
*Honey and Paprika (sounds kinda gross, but was delicious. trust me.)
*Olive oil, garlic, basil, rosemary, chopped parsley, sea salt, cracked pepper, a blend of parmesan, romano and asiago cheese and bits of pepperoni
That last recipe was Andrew's creation. What a show-off.
Trick or Treat, ya'll.
