I have fond memories from my childhood of being gathered around the dining room table with my dad, mom and two younger sisters Abigail and Annabeth. It's October, Halloween is just a couple weeks away, and we're decorating Halloween cookies together as The Monster Mash spins on my dad's vinyl record player.
I've been eating pumpkin seeds ever since I was old enough to have solid foods. It's one of the best things about carving pumpkins--knowing that you'll get to eat the roasted seeds when it's all said and done.
Like it or not, fall is here, (pretty much, let's not get technical about it, okay?). We all know what that means -- hot apple cider, digging out your sweaters from the back of the closet, and people going on and on about how much they love pumpkin spice lattes.
Between your foolproof stencil of Justin Bieber's face and an endless supply of premium 99 cent carving tools, you probably envisioned yourself minutes away from that dreamy pop star pumpkin glowing all over your neighbors' jealous faces. What could go wrong?
Last weekend, my family decided we were fed up with working and chores and we were going to have some fun. We found it at 101 Market in Otsego.
