After pancakes, we headed to a nearby nursery to pick up a pumpkin. There were lots of different colors and varieties of pumpkins and gourds. Here are a few of my favorites...
The gourds below are called snake gourds- they were so long and twisty!
The knucklehead pumpkins reminded me of my daddy- he always calls people "knuckleheads" :)
Later tonight we came to my apartment and carved my pumpkin that I bought- I decided to do a lighthouse jack-o-lantern. I couldn't find a printable stencil online so we free handed it. Not sure that anybody else could tell that it is a lighthouse, but I like it! :)
We roasted the pumpkin seeds...yummy yummy, and then made pumpkin muffins! I'll post tomorrow with the recipe, they are fantastic and moist.
