Happy Halloween!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Halloween Monday!  Nick and I carved our first pumpkins together to celebrate our first married holiday together!  Here are some pictures of the fun:

I got the joy of cleaning out the goo and seeds and Nick did the artistic work of actually carving the pumpkins.  Here is how they turned out:

I also decided that it would be a waste to throw out the goo and the seeds so I made pureed pumpkin and toasted the seeds.  Most of the puree is going to my niece in the form of baby food, but I have a few recipes I am going to try with the rest of it.

Here are the 2 recipies I used for toasting the seeds ( and  I will try and remember to share when I use the rest of the puree.

Happy Halloween!
