This is the giant pumpkin I won at a recent Halloween party. It is huge. It is whopping. Consequently it lives outside and greets people as they enter our apartment building. And yes, it is thicker than the tree trunk you see in the background.
How do you win such a pumpkin? You guess its precise weight. It was actually pretty easy. I picked up the pumpkin and realized it weighed nearly the same as my two year old little man – 37 pounds!
I suppose I now ought to plan some pumpkin meals.
Monday: Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry, rice and fruit
Tuesday: Swiss Chicken Bake and veggies
Wednesday: Happy Halloween! (Leftovers, served with a side of candy.)
Thursday: Honey Balsamic Chicken, Vegetable Couscous and veggies (This is a new chicken recipe I am trying. I will let you know how it turns out.)
Friday: Clean out the fridge day.
Saturday: Tacos, fruit and veggies
Sunday: My Day Off
