Carving Cravings

This may be a little off the baking topic, but I haven't carved a pumpkin in years. Last year I decided I wanted to carve one but I was traveling for work every week and never found the time. So, this year I bought two pumpkins so Victor and I could each carve one. It was fun and we were happy with the results but we probably pushed our pending carpal tunnel syndrome up a few years! Guess who did which pumpkin....

Actually, there was some baking involved in this effort. We saved the seeds that we scooped out from inside the pumpkin and roasted them in the oven with a little salt. Roasted pumpkin seeds are high in protein and fiber!

Actually, Victor did the face and I did the bat. I confess I used a template that came with our pumpkin carving tools that we bought. Victor drew his freehand and then traced his own design.
