VeganMofo 2010: Spoooooky (ok, not really)

Happy VeganMoFo!! I'm super-excited about this month (and a little overwhelmed, to be honest. I have a heavy workload on top of this!)  I am planning to blog every weekday with lots of yumminess, pretty photos, and fun illustrations.   Perhaps even a print giveaway?? Stay tuned!

This was the first time that I have carved a pumpkin in about ten bajillion years, so I hope you know how mega-excited I was (and hopefully Nik too, but I kinda made him play along!)  We had little pumpkins, because prices for the big ones in NYC are redonkulous. I miss picking pumpkins in a patch! Maybe I will venture out of the city next year.  Oh, and I will remember to pick up some apple cider to enjoy while carving too (and make doughnuts??) 

Mmmm, roasted pumpkin seeds. I don't rinse mine first, because I like all the dried pumpkiny goodness on the seeds.  I mix a little bit of olive oil, sea salt, and pepper and roast on 400F for a good 15-20 min. or so.  Nom nom nom.

I'm proud of my cutie-cat!  And Nik's is pretty hilarious cute. :)

Spooooooooooooky!  Hope you had a fun Halloween!


  1. Your pumpkins are AWESOME! This was the first year in a bajillion years that I DIDN'T have a pumpkin. The price of them was just insane and I couldn't justify spending that on a little pumpkin. It did feel weird not having one but I like to think that balance is restored through you.
    YAY MoFo!

  2. Your pumpkins are so awesome! All the roasted pumpkin seed posts are making want to go find a clearance pumpkin just for the seeds!

  3. I love your pumpkins! Happy MoFo!

  4. Aww gorgeous pics! They really make me miss being in the US for Halloween. Pumpkin seeds are the best!

  5. Your kitty pumpkin has to be the cutest pumpkin in the world! Nik's is second cutest.

    I have never carved a pumpkin as Halloween is not really big here but maybe next year I will give it a go.

  6. Super cute!! I love your pumpkins! They're equal on the cute-o-meter!

    I'm looking forward to more of your MoFo posts!

  7. kitty-o-lantern for the win!!!! sorry i haven't left any comments on your blog up to now, mofo is hard!


  8. Mofo is totally hard Kittee! I feel your pain!
