This year I tried to be one of those people who save the pumpkin scoopings and pick out all the seeds and roast them. I managed to do the "save the pumpkin scoopings" part all right. But there wasn't room in my refrigerator for them (not surprising). And then I forgot about them all day Sunday, even though they were sitting in a huge bowl on my counter.
Monday morning? Wow. You know, I had no idea that vegetable matter could smell like dead fish. Learn something new every day, eh?
And where's that NatureMill electric composter when I need it?
I leave you with a bit of doggerel (apologies to Joyce Kilmer):
I think that I shall never see
A day lovely as Halloween.
A Snickers bar with peanuts packed,
Fills up my mouth and gives good snack;
A Reese's cup with peanut butter,
Why, yes, I think I'll have another;
What's this? A bag of M&M's?
Both plain and peanut are my friends.
Some minty dark 3 Musketeers,
Will chase away those ghoulish fears.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only chocolate makes Halloween.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled diet...
