Have fun with solar lights, jack-o-lanterns and candles!

The Free Weekly’s out today, and as some of you may already know if you’ve read Ripples’ latest column, I just carved my first jack-o-lantern!  This experience was unexpectedly scintillating. I was jump-for-joy excited to find this rainbow, medium-sized pumpkin at the Farmer’s Market, but then to look inside of it and hollow it out, then watch it glowing while our living room began to smell like pumpkin pie…words cannot express. Today we roasted the pumpkin seeds from inside our jack-o-lantern, and flavored them with vegan butter, cinnamon, salt and cayenne pepper. Here’s a photo slideshow to share our experience with you, and a link to the National Wildlife Federation where you can learn about making snack-o-lanterns for your backyard wildlife as a way to recycle your used jack-o-lanterns!
