Martha Stewart, I am not, but I still aspire to have even 1% of the imagination I see in her magazines — especially the Halloween special issue which is my favorite. Happened to see the issue at the fancy bookstore in the city center for about €15. Needless to say, I thumbed through it but didn’t buy it. It reminded me of the silhouette jack-o-lanterns I had seen in the magazine a few years ago. So, I used one of the handy-dandy HGTV patterns and made of this little fellow last week.
An added bonus to carving pumpkins is roasting the seeds. These were roasted with light olive oil cooking spray, Old Bay spice and a bit of sea salt.
