Pumpkin and Kale stir-fry

I hope you enjoyed Halloween. Did you carve a pumpkin? I always find pumpkin carving quite difficult, so am impressed with some of the amazing designs that I see online. I understand a stencil is the key, however I don’t think I would have the patience. But at least the boys were happy with my basic carving.


And of course I didn’t want to waste the pumpkin flesh. Instead I used it in a stir-fry.

    That sounds delicious! I love the addition of the macadamias. And I think you did a great job of the pumpkin carving, I always find it so much harder than it looks!

    That’s a great carving job! I think most (if not all) of the picture-perfect masterpieces are made with special tools (like electric routers and jicksaws). But you did a real carving! Besides, you get extra points for eating the pumpkin.
