halloween shenanigans

happy halloween! phil and i are getting all dressed up as a couple of fancy party goers who got murdered. i should probably come up with a better name for it, but that works for now 🙂

today has been full of excitement because phil got to carve his first pumpkin (which we picked from crockford bridge farm) and i got to roast up some pumpkin seeds. i think the pumpkin looks pretty damn scary, don’t you?


and after scooping out and cleaning off the seeds, i roasted them in a hot oven for about 20 minutes with some oil and plenty of salt. yummy snack or a great addition to salads.


i usually associate halloween / fall / pumpkins with america, but i’m glad we were able to have a mini celebration at home today, followed by a fun party tonight in foggy londontown.

since halloween candy doesn’t really exist here, i hope all the americans reading this have an extra handful of candy corn for me 🙂

    Hey! First time commenter, long time reader 😉

    Had a spaghetti squash for dinner last night and spent an extremely fun 10 minutes popping the seeds out of the pulp. Will try roasting them tonight- yum time!

      hi hi lucy! let me know how you get on with the seeds. i think a combo of roasting + toasting (in a frying pan) make them winners, but i’d love to hear how you do it. thanks for reading 🙂

        Mmmm… roasted them in a hot oven with plenty of oil and salt, as suggested! They were a bit squashed in though so didn’t cook very evenly. Will defo do it again though, particularly as it’s squash season- whoop 🙂
