Yesterday after school we got busy with some pumpkins. We cut their caps off, scooped out the middles and drew faces on the skins;

We sorted the seeds and dried them in the oven to make pumpkin seed bread at the weekend;

Nathaniel made a very smiley face and the girls made a more traditional scary face, Elizabeth experimented with just removing the skin in parts to make the detail glow;

We enjoyed pumpkin curry for tea and we have pumkin soup in the fridge for another night this week.

Can't believe it's November already!?

Where did you get pumpkins?? I tried Asda yesterday i.e. Halloween and they didn't have any at all!!! Very disappointed but we are having butternut squash lasagne instead of pumpkin lasagne! The pumpkins look good :)
