I tried snapping a photo of our glowing jack-o-lantern last evening, but the camera flash kept going off and I couldn’t capture the ‘glow.’ I’ll have to read how to turn off the flash and try again tonight.
Meanwhile, late this morning I began cooking down a gooseneck pumpkin. I have learned to use my crock pot to do this and have had GREAT success with it! First I remove the pumpkin skin with a vegetable peeler. Next, I slice the pumpkin into 1 inch discs. Then I cube it. After that, it gets dumped into the crock pot along with a splash of water. I put on the lid, set the pot to low and leave it to cook throughout the day! Today I decided to change it up a bit…I added a healthy splash of vanilla, a spot of water, two whole cinnamon sticks and a good measure of nutmeg. We’ll see how it turns out?! Here’s how it looks so far.
I sipped some coffee this morning and took a few stitches. Stitching interspersed with chores makes for a productive yet FUN day! I hope you are enjoying your weekend too! ; )
