That's The Spirit!



After begging my man, my sister, and everyone else... no one would carve pumpkins with me.. or if they would, they didn't have the time. My focus for the end of the year is to enjoy the holidays (including Halloween) and doing the things that I have always enjoyed. The man always says "I'm boring, I don't like that stuff" to EVERYTHING. It is so hard for me, cause sometimes it is just nice to get excited about something.. even if it is simple, or dumb, or "small minded" or... whatever.
I went to the store to pick up some Kale today (can you believe it, I have never tried kale) and decided that I was buying a pumpkin and carving it. I was in a debate as to if I should carve a tradition pumpkin face or an "OM" sign. I went with the Pumpkin face. After all, I didn't want to cut my hand off! less is more. I pulled all the goop and seeds out (one of my favorite parts) and are preparing those to roast. And there (above) lies the finished product. What do you think?

Happy Halloween!!! :) Go do something fun that makes YOU happy!

Oh, I was in the same boat. I bought 2 pumpkins for the kids to carve....and NO ONE wanted to do it. Not even the dog! So I went about carving myself some pumpkins - one scary and one happy! Like you, I chose to celebrate! Yay! Yours looks GREAT! Happy Halloween!!!!!

ps. I LOVE kale! I saute it w/onions & garlic or I put it in my soups...yum!

Jules! I could of come to carve pumpkins with you!!! Too bad we don't live near one another lol!
I didn't get to try my kale last night but I couldn't find my recipe that I found in Yoga Journal because someone threw my copy out (grr) So I am glad you gave me the idea of saute otherwise I wouldnt exactly know what to do with it! haha! I am kind of excited to try it.... Happy Halloween!
