How To Style A Pumpkin

octopus-pumpkin-2016 I learned a few critical things this year at my annual pumpkin carving party:

  1. When in doubt, cut it out
  2. Apple cider and amaretto is the nectar of the gods
  3. It is way more fun to carve a design than to scrape a design into your pumpkin as I did this year (above)
  4. This song is the perfect accompaniment for carving (Thanks, Johnny)

As usual, it was like an episode of America's Got Talent up in my kitchen. Witness last night's output:

Happy Halloween a few weeks early!
