We love tradition–there is something quaint about establishing them and adding to them each year. While we’ve attempted many things in Halloweens past, the only thing that has remained a steady tradition for us are, Jack-be-little pumpkins. These petite pumpkins serve as our decoration and are then transform them into a simple dessert on Halloween day!
1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
2. Rinse off the pumpkin, slice off a little of the top, take out seeds.
3. Melt about 1/2 tsp butter in each pumpkin on half -power in microwave (vary according to size), sprinkle with approx 1/2 tsp of spice (cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg…)
I love the coziness of the warmth and cold juxtaposed in my mouth!
Other Halloween happenings…
If you don’t already know, our last name is Kao, but it is pronounced, “Ga-ow.” It is often mispronounced as, “cow”— and I really love that about my last name : ) So, for our friend’s Halloween party, We Kaos, went as cows…
I couldn’t resist.
The only problem is, we were strapped for time (less than 2 hours) so, I feel like I did a haphazard job of painting on the cow spots. We got creative with the ears and I think the cow bells tied everything together. I’ve been wanting to do this ever since I made Emmy’s mobile pictured here. I upcyced an old PJ gown for her costume, so there is a flap that folds over into her hooves, but she likes sucking on her fingers so we left them out….
Hope ya had great Halloween!
