It’s Autumn, which means that, just like last year, it’s time to bring on the gourds!
We managed to acquire a couple of Pumpkins from work- (don’t worry, they’re not terrifying Genetically Modified Organisms, and nobody’s been doing experiments on them).
I took to work, making my first ever Jack-O-Lantern, admittedly a bit early for the Halloween Season.
First cut the head …..
…scoop out the squidgy brainy bits (with the seeds to be dried and salted for the eating)..
… and draw on something resembling a face…
Meanwhile, the slightly-more-edible butternut pumpkin was baked and pumelled and turned into scones:
Mr Lantern was cut, and put outside to dry…
.. and the scones came out of the oven, were slathered in butter, and scoffed down.
What do you think?
He watches from the darkness…
.. always watching!
