Halloween preparations.


Vi har hatt en morsom ettermiddag med Halloween forberedelser i dag.

We have had a fun afternoon of Halloween preparations today.



Vi har ikke dyrket gresskar i år, så det ble til at vi kjøpte et lite gresskar i butikken for å lage lykt. Man må jo ha en gresskarlykt til Halloween!
I dag skar vi den ut. Datteren min tegnet opp ansikt og jeg skar ut.
Vi syntes den ble riktig så fin, og så ser den jo ganske snill ut :)


We did not grow pumpkins in the kitchen garden this summer, so we have bought a small pumpkin at the grocery store to make a lantern.
The lantern was made today, my daughter drew the face and I did the cutting.
It turned out nice, looking like a kind and smiling lantern :)



Og da mørket falt på gikk vi ut og tente lys i gresskarlykten for å se hvordan den ble.

As darkness fell we lit a candle inside the lantern and went outside too see.



Gresskaret var fullt av store, fine frø. Etter å ha renset, skyllet og tørket av frøene, ble de lagt på et stekebrett og ristet i stekeovnen med litt smør, salt, pepper og hvitløk til snacks.
Det var første gang vi laget laget dette av frøene, og det smakte faktisk ganske godt.


The pumpkin was filled with seeds, so we decided to make roasted pumkin seeds.
 The seeds were cleansed, washed, and then mixed with a little butter, salt, black pepper and garlic and roasted in the oven untill golden.
It was the first time we made this, and it was actually quite good.




Ellers har datteren min laget spøkelses-marengs som ble både fine og gode.De spares til i morgen, men vi måtte jo prøvesmake noen.

My daughter made ghost meringues, which were cute as well as delicious. We are saving them for tomorrow, but of course had to taste a few.



Og vi har funnet frem kostymer.
Så nå er det meste klart til i morgen.


We also looked through the costumes.
So now we are almost ready for tomorrow evening.

Small ghosts meringues are lovely.

And the pumpkin in the darkness looks very scary.

Happy Halloween!
