I decided that between studying for midterms, school, and work pumpkin carving would just not fit in our schedule this year. We went the easier route of painting pumpkins. Monday night we sat on the floor, watched how I met your mother and went to painting. I would say it was a mini success. The paint I went with started to peel off (fail), but it was fun (success!).
I have to admit I loved not having to take the time to clean out all the guts, but that also meant no pumpkin seeds to roast. Sad! I made up for it by baking an apple cinnamon cake, I’ll share the recipe soon!
Did you carve, paint or decorate pumpkins some other way yet?!
