1. We haven’t carved our pumpkins yet. Dad fail. I have to get on that this weekend. What designs should we carve this year?

  1. When my daughter was little, I always gave her one pumpkin for herself. She drew a face on it and I carved it. Those were some strange-looking jack-o-lanterns, but she loved it. Hint: little ones tend to draw narrow features, so if you use candles to light the jack-lantern, you’ll need to carve an extra “chimney” in the back. Carve it like a bat, star, or moon and get an extra light show behind!

  2. I love all your dishes especially those cookies you made with oats and raisins. I always refer your dishes to my cook book. It is very useful to me . Thank you for sharing precious recipes to me. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing your posts!!
