My First Pumpking Carving Experience

October 22, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

After spending most of my life in the US, you'd think I'd be so acclimated to American culture that I've done everything there is possible to being American and celebrating the (at least Christian) holidays.   Well, I've painted Easter eggs probably twice in my life... Mother's Day and Father's Day are just days where I call my parents... Christmas is a family day with limited presents... Thanksgiving is a day for lots of turkey and Cambodian food.   So needless to say, I've NEVER carved a pumpkin in my life... until this weekend.    My friend, the doctor, came to visit this weekend and we tried to pack in as many fall activities as possible...

But first, we had to go to the pumpkin patch!

And you need some cider to go with your pumpkin carving, so what's more perfect than pumpkin cider??

 

We only gave ourselves 45 minutes to carve 2 pumpkins before we had to leave to drop off the doctor at the airport.  She had to go back to Columbus.  :-(  This is how I felt about that...

After the airport dropoff, we came back to clean up and roast the seeds (melted butter and TONS of Tastefully Simple Seasoning Salt... may have been a little overkill, but oh well)!  I'm so glad we did two pumpkins because I can't get enough of them.  And finally.... our finished work!  Not so bad for the first pumpkins I ever carved!
