Who Carved it Best?

Every year Husband and I carve a pumpkin for Halloween. Most times it turns into a pumpkin carving competition. In fact, most activities Husband and I do together turn into competitions. This year we picked our perfect pumpkins from Gentry Farm and we carved them while catching up on missed episodes of Dancing With the Stars and eating homemade butternut squash soup. We’re a wild couple, I know.

We made sure to save and separate the seeds because I LOVE roasted pumpkin seeds.

Duckie doesn’t understand the word “no” yet… We tried to shoo her away from the pumpkin guts, but at some point we gave up and assumed she would taste the pumpkin and decide not to eat it. We were very wrong. I guess pumpkin can’t hurt cats, right?

After cleaning, drying off the seeds (and sleeping for 8 hours…seeds take a long time to dry!), I roasted them. I tossed them in olive oil, salt and pepper and baked them at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Now for the grand finale…our pumpkins!

Mine is clearly the crooked eyed Minnie Mouse and Husband’s is from the video game Minecraft.

So, what do you think? Who won?

  1. The Minnie Mouse pumpkin is awesome! Also, I love pumpkin seeds.

  2. Pumpkin is actually pretty good for cats! Sometimes the vet recommends it for various tummy traumas. 🙂

    1. Oh really?? That’s good to know! I don’t feel like a bad mommy now
