Then He Put Her In A Pumpkin Shell, And He Kept Her Very Well
Across the street in the shopping lot, someone has set up a pumpkin lot. While I respect someone trying to make a buck, let's consider the facts:
This is Phoenix, AZ.
It is 2 weeks to Halloween.
It's currently in the 90s.
Considering that pumpkins mold out overnight this time of year, I don't think that this is a good idea. Also, all the pumpkins are your standard orange ones, although they do have a variety of sizes and shapes.
If I'm going to shell out $10 for a pumpkin, I want one of the fairytale pumpkins like the above. They must be very hot--the Fry's out in AJ had tons of them, very reasonably priced. Or a cutie pie pumpkin.
Where do you stand on the pumpkin issue? Do you purchase them? And do you carve? I hate pumpkin carving--too stinky and messy.
This is what I am making for dinner this week: Turkey Pumpkin Goulash
