Saturday night, Nic and I planned a "date night" that involved everything to do with Fall/Halloween...
Here's the finished product of the Chicken Chili. It was so good, but a bit too spicy for me. Nic tried to tone it down a bit, but even he wanted it to be spicier. Needless to say, I put quite a bit of shredded cheese to tone down the spiciness. It was very tasty - we ate our chili while watching The Skeleton Key (cookies were baking and cooling).
Next it was on to carving pumpkins. Nic has only carved pumpkins once! I couldn't believe it. I always remember carving pumpkins in our garage growing up - I haven't done it in awhile though.
After taking out the guts (which are tasty to eat I might add), I like to bake the seeds. I remember my mom always doing that when I was growing up. Add some butter, stir them around until they are nice and golden brown, and add some salt - delicious little treat. Nic thought I was wierd because I like to eat some of the guts and the seeds...more for me! :)
Here are our pumpkins glowing in the night (Nic's is on the left and mine is on the right). I love the way they both turned out!
