Happy Halloween from the Four Legged! Riley was starting to panic that we were never carving pumpkins, but come 3pm yesterday I set aside work and gathered our pumpkin gear in the kitchen! I have no carving abilities and since I am a Type A person I can’t have shabby looking pumpkins so cookie cutters, a hammer, and a drill are our “pumpkin carving tools.”
We had 3 pumpkins, but one of them did not make it to Halloween. Perhaps I shouldn’t buy the Pumpkins in September! We used a really cool leaf cookie cutter and our traditional star. You simply hammer the cookie cutter into the pumpkin until it pops the design out. Just keep in mind that if you go this route it ruins the cookie cutter. I try to pick up cookie cutters on clearance specifically for pumpkin carving. I use the drill to create shooting stars which will allow more light to shine. When we add the candle for trick or treating the pumpkins will look even cooler!
After cleaning up pumpkin guts we roasted pumpkin seeds and tried to get the drill as clean as possible. I have owned this drill for about 10 years and so far I have drilled one hole to hang a photo and used it about 10x for pumpkin carving. Rufus insisted that we play Halloween music while we cleaned up, but Riley was not in the mood for a Halloween Dance Party. His focus is on the candy….when are the trick or treaters coming??
