My way too creepy zombie pumpkin

All of my delicious ingredients for my pumpkin recipes

First up are my huge pupils on the bus ride home after my optometrist appointment.  I had a freckle in my eye that my eye doctor wanted to dilate my pupils and get a better look at.  I was awarded a gorgeous pair of those roll-up sunglasses that look oh-so-amazing underneath your regular glasses.  I was at the height of fashion that day.  And also nearly blind…

I had wanted this pumpkin to be amazing.  what I got was the creepiest pumpkin I have ever seen.  I bought googly green eyes and drew the red lines with a permanent marker to make them look bloodshot.  Then I drew over the red lines with a yellow marker to make them look like my pumpkin was sick with jaundice or hepatitis or zombie-itis.

Here is a lovely still-live of my delicious ingredients.  My Thai-Spiced Pumpkin soup came out way too salty due to the fact that the recipe said to coat the pumpkin slices with a generous amount of the sea salt.  I highly recommend against this unless you want the saltiest soup you have ever eaten!  I also made some Sweet and Spicy roasted pumpkin seeds with the seeds from my zombie pumpkin.  I plan to make the Curried pumpkin seeds with the other half of the pumpkin I used for the soup.
