halloween downunder?

I met these Halloween pumpkins in Oxford St Balmoral. I was really surprised I have not seen them in Australia before. The $18 converts to $11USA …I understand these pumpkins are about $2 to $3 in America.

Just carve eyes and a smile in the front and and then lop the top off, and scoop out the pulp and insert a candle for an eery effect.  I have no idea if you can eat them…do you?

    Hi Jane!

    Those pumpkins look really nice. Yes, we lop off the top, scoop out the pulp and seeds, cut triangle eyes, nose, and crooked-teeth smile. We put a votive candle inside and light it. There are companies that make very detailed stencils to use when cutting out a face or picture.

    Some people use the pulp to make something to eat, but I don’t. What I do is put all the seeds on a cookie sheet, cover them with butter and salt, and bake for about 10-15 minutes at about 350. They make a tasty treat!

    I think the clock I was talking about was probably on one of the sites that you link to. Sorry to confuse you. Of course, I cannot find which link it is now!

    I’m still tweaking the blog, trying to find a suitable header, etc. I moved Tootsie’s picture down to the blog where I introduced her.

    Hope you have a great Halloween!
