Happy Halloween!

I hope you had, or are having, a super halloween. Our plans to go to Salem, MA fell through so we stayed here in Providence.

I'm giving myself a high five because I enjoyed pumpkin three ways today.

I carved my first Jack O' Lantern. Okay, Richard did most of the carving.

Even the cat is excited about the Jack O' Lantern.

I saved the seeds from inside the pumpkin and oven roasted them at 250 for about an hour with cinnamon, clove, ginger, maple syrup, sugar, salt, and canola oil. They are a little chewy. Maybe too much maple syrup or not enough heat? IDK. Either way, that's not stopping me from snacking on them!

I got almost a cup of seeds from one little pumpkin!

I also mixed pumpkin flesh with leftover tomato sauce and spaghetti for lunch. It's surprisingly delicious and filling! (So delicious, I ate it all before I thought to snap a pic!)

Richard's gorilla paws!
Tonight, we handed out candy to the kids. The best costume award goes to little Abraham Lincoln. The cutest trick-or-treater award goes the 4 foot tall boy in a brown furry teddy bear costume. A-dor-a-ble!

I feel like I should actually mention something that has to do with cleaning. Hmmm...Oh yes! I used rubbing alcohol to remove the black adhesive that held my craft fur mustache to my face. So easy!
