Our Halloween tradition has been to go to a friend's for a Halloween party complete with a pumpkin carving contest. The family decided to call it quits this year, and we thought the holiday wouldn't be the same.
Instead, we each carved a pumpkin (I did have to help my younger son when he decided on the most complicated design of the bunch -- our school district's athletic logo). It was fun and it may be a new tradition for us!
I'm spending the day experimenting with pumpkin seeds. First batch "tasted like burnt toast," according to my son, but I have high hopes that I'll have a good recipe/technique to share by the end of the day.
Hope it's a good one.
