Why should pumpkins have all the fun?
Tonight we made our spaghetti squash into a squash-o-lantern. His name is Charlie.
First we cut it into two uneven pieces – one with the top and the other just the back side.
Then we scooped out the insides. Since the insides were raw, I put them into some aluminum foil. Then I’ll just put them in the oven to bake just as if they were still in the squash.
I remember carving jack-o-lanterns being really hard. So I was surprised how easy this one was to do. I’m not sure if that’s because it was a spaghetti squash or because I’m no longer eight.
It sure was fun to make. Now to find a good use for the insides!
