Oh My Gourd!

Yesterday we bought some gourds at a pumpkin patch. That's a little ironic, huh? The man at the pumpkin patch told us there is a pumpkin shortage in the area. We picked out a couple of gourds and figured they would serve as decent substitutes for pumpkins. How silly of us! After getting them home and attempting to cut into them with a paring knife, I realized they were pretty much rock hard.
Gourd carving fail!

Hopefully the pumpkin patch near my work still has some pumpkins, because I'd really like to carve a pumpkin this year. There's something very satisfying about carving a fun design into a pumpkin and then lighting up your hard work with a candle.

Pumpkins or not, last night my husband searched our storage closet for my favorite little turkey tea light holders. It's starting to feel more like fall here in Florida with each passing day. Before we know it, we'll be eating turkey and cranberry sauce and then opening Christmas gifts. Whew!

Happy Halloween!

Eat some candy for me.

p.s. That blue bear in the first photo appears in our wedding pics...
I should really share those some day soon!


  1. I hope you find a pumpkin to carve! I love the turkey candle holder, it's really cute and fall-ish!

    Happy Halloween!

  2. I love that Turkey! Perfect timing to take us from one holiday to the next :)

    Happy Halloween to you too!

    ps: about that recipe question, I put the lid on the pot and put it in the oven for 3 hours at 325. Makes the whole house smell delicious!! Hope you love it!
