Pottering around with Pumpkins

Every year I attempt to carve my own pumpkins, I’m such a big kid, but when I was younger I never got to do all this!  When we were younger pumpkins were unthought-of, it was turnips all the way, yes turnips, instead of a pumpkin my parents would carve out a turnip!  I love pumpkins too, they are just so stunning even before they are carved!

Last year I did attempt to make soup with the carved out pumpkin, but I have to say it tasted horrible.  The year before I used it to make spiced pumpkin cake and muffins, but this year I didn’t bother doing any of that.

Check out this year’s carving tools, I have to say the Pumpkin Carver Kit from Sainsburys was a total gift!  It made the carving and scooping out so easy to do!

Check out my Pumpkins!
