This year, I invested in a pumpkin carving kit that came with some little plastic tools that claimed to be safer than a knife...but in reality were quite dangerous. (There may or may not have been a band-aid involved.)
|Like I could carve any of those!|
|The aforementioned "safe" carving tools.|
So with my new, fancy plastic tools I took a deep breath, said a little prayer that my pumpkin was in fact, not alive, and began carving.
It turns out that my pumpkin WAS alive and began to weep. So I put on a brave face and continued to cut and gut not just one, but three pumpkins*! (Obviously this warrants extra gold stars.)
*The smaller pie pumpkins are sooo thick and packed with seeds and pumpkin meat. There is a reason people don't carve pie pumpkins!
