I can’t believe I’ve never carved a pumpkin….
One thing on my 101 in 1001 list is to carve a pumpkin! I can’t believe I’ve reached 27 and never done this. I don’t know what it is but visiting pumpkin patches feels oddly American to me. The red leaves falling off the trees, the orange pumpkins and mustard chunky knit sweaters all create a beautiful kaleidoscope that gets me into the Autumn spirits.
Pumpkins aren’t just good for carving either! I am obsessed with spiced pumpkin soup as the evenings draw in, but tonight I needed something a bit more substantial…
so opted for spicy tofu and vegetable bibimbap. Every single time I order this the chef looks puzzled. Bibimbap is traditionally rice with a variety of vegetables on top however I don’t particularly want rice so ask for the spicy tofu as the base then the vegetables on top. It’s absolutely delicious but clearly not the tradition they’re used to so I often get a few odd stares when I request it.
I have also tried to get back on the editing train. I’ve been doing a lot more editing at work so been a bit burnt out on it when I get home to focus on more but I have so much filmed and so many ideas that I just need to make that final push to get the content out. Editing yourself is always the worst part but I guess you have to take the good with the bad.
Have you ever carved pumpkins?
If so what’s your go-to design – spooky, realistic or cute?
