Happy Halloween everyone!
We aren't a big Halloween family, but the kiddos are going trick-or-treating tonight and they are so excited!
Here are some interesting tid-bits about pumpkins that I wanted to share with ya'll....
- Pumpkin (pepon) is a Greek word for “large melon”.
- Pumpkins are actually a fruit - I had no idea!
- Pumpkins are a type of squash. They are members of Cucurbita family (cucumbers, zucchini, etc.).
- Pumpkins contain potassium and Vitamin A. They are really good for you. I LOVE pumpkin!!
- Pumpkins are grown on 6 of the 7 continents (not on Antarctica).
- Pumpkin flowers are edible. Again, this is really interesting. Ever tried to eat one?
- Pumpkins are 90% water.
- Pumpkin sees can be roasted as a snack.
- Colonists sliced off pumpkin tops; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.
Hope this video gives you a little smile today - lots of pranks going on!
I'm not feeling well right now (pray for me if you get a chance, would you?), but will get by to visit all of you soon! Ya'll have a safe weekend - have fun with your families and take lots of pictures!
