Thank you very much
. Over here we've never really been into pumpkins that much, but this year I thought it might be fun. The two pumpkins were very different, actually. The first one I did had much less stringy insides - after the initial scooping of the innards, a little whip-round with an ice cream cone had it nice and smooth. For the cat though, it was so much more stringy. Also, finding a balance between thick enough not to break and thin enough to carve was pretty difficult, I found.
All in all, very happy with the results
