Hello Halloween

Pumpkin I spent all day Thursday making chicken stock. 

At great expense Tom and I bought this beautiful pumpkin from our favourite local fruit shop.  It weighed 4.5 kg (which I know is 10 pound 1 ounce because that's what Max weighed at birth).

I thought I was going to have so much pumpkin flesh that I would need to make a lot fo pumpkin soup (hence the chicken stock).  When I cut the base of it open I was amazed to find it was mostly hollow.

Anyway, with a little help from Martha, we carved our pumpkin and put it on the front verandah.

Halloween pumpkin

Three orange balloons on the front fence attracted a large number of neighbourhood children and the boys enjoyed handing out the lollies.  

I hope you all enjoyed your halloween.
