Anyway, I know I have not been around for a while so I thought I would drop a line and say hi.
Today we carved out a Halloween display, albeit minor. My youngest daughter and I got two pumpkins and a pineapple. I cut the top off the pineapple and used a de-core tool to get the juicy (and delicious) insides out. My Sharpe would not make a mark on the pineapple so I had to do it by my eye. It came out looking messed up but I liked it.
I used a drill with a cake mixer attachment to clean the insides out once the heavy stuff is removed. They say an egg beater will do the same. My daughter used a regular knife to carve hers and she did a really good job, but, I cheat.
I drilled holes in mine with a drill bit then used a electric carver, like a small Saws-all.
What I was going for was the pumpkins seeing the pineapple and freaking out a bit. You can tell me in we succeeded.
And remember, the seeds can be roasted. If you don’t like that idea, toss it outside instead of the garbage. The squirrels will love you for it.
