Comments for Happy Halloween
Last night Sean helped me get things ready for Halloween. The first thing we did was bake brownies for his school party. I taught him about baker's chocolate and how it has to be melted and sweetened before it tastes good. He watched me mix all the ingredients and get it poured into the preheated tray.
Then it was time to carve the jackolantern. I did all the knife work but he helped with the scooping and the design creation. As we scooped out the inside we sorted the stuff into three piles: innards for the compost heap, seeds for roasting, and pumpkin flesh for boiling for pie.
Tomorrow I will slice up the pumpkin and cook the rest of it for pie. I have some of the small ones to go with the pieces to sweeten things. I'm looking forward to our first pie of the season.
