My pumpkins this Halloween

This is one of the best holiday for us gourd lovers! I have some pictures to share of the neat pumpkins I made this year into jack-o-lanterns.

This is my budgie pumpkin. I drew it and carved it myself. I don't think I'm very good at carving so I'm happy with how all these turned out. The rest behind the cut

My pumpkins

These are the pumpkins I bought for this year. I'm very happy with them and the many varieties that I got. The one in the very back and the one that has netting on it in the front are called One Too Many. I got one Goose Neck Gourd. A green Jamboree pumpkin. A bunch of Little Iron Sides. A huge blue Hubbard in the back, a big red hubbard. One normal Jack-o-Lantern and the others I don't know what they are. Some will be used in pies, others carved and othes left as is for decorating.

Does anyone have any good easy recipes they could post here for me? I'm a lousy cook so they need to be simple with easy to obtain ingredients. I'd like to make soups or something else. I prefer savory over sweet.

Yankee Candle trip...

Went to the local Yankee Candle outlet today to score some candles. The outlet also had lip balm, one flavor which was Spiced Pumpkin. It's fucking awesome. :)

I wanna eat it. ;)
