It was bound to happen...

On halloween, I didn't carve a pumpkin.
$25 for a pumpkin?! you've got to be kidding.
Plus, mother decided I'd make too much of a mess (killjoy)

But, just like when I don't have cereal for breakfast,
and end up eating cereal for dessert (cereal is without a doubt one of the best foods ever)
I eventually took to a vegetable with a knife.

When I saw the lone capsicum sitting on my kitchen bench I was struck with a brilliant idea.
Eat the capsicum? Oh heck no. 
Grab a serrated knife and freehand a face on the capsicum? You betcha! 
Carving a pepper was probably 110, 000 times easier than carving a pumpkin. 
Though, you couldn't stick a candle inside, because:
1) It wouldn't fit
2) You'd probably kill your lungs with capsaicin

 This was a much better idea than eating the capsicum in my opinion.
They seem to be one of the few vegetables which I can't stand.

But anyway, 
I hope my utterly random dorky post distracted you for just a few moments
and you have an excellent start to your week!

Keep your eyes peeled, 
because I have some things planned for the rest of the week! 

But before you go, 
do tell me...

If you had to pick one food that was your absolute favourite, 
what would it be?

Mine would have to be cereal.
I'm not one of these, eat the whole cereal box types, 
but I would rather eat some dry cereal than snack on chips or candy :P 

Any cereal is good as long as it's not too sweet,
I don't know how froot loops would go down.
Plain cereals are my favourite, because it means I get to add whatever I feel like!


  1. and so easy! I didn't want to get rid of him :P but my sister ate it

  2. Heh, he's kinda cute! You could have a whole row of different coloured ones with different facial expressions...

  3. :P
    I totally thought about doing that! Maybe I will if I ever have a surplus of capsicums :P

  4. Brilliant idea! Turned out really well, too! :)

  5. Thankyou :) I thought it was cute :P

  6. cute!! Do yoiu know how to carve pumkins?? I've always wanted to try, but no one in my family likes pumpkins so there's never any pumpkins in our house.....I didn't know they were THAT expensive though!! Oh well....I can play with capsicum instead =) I LOVE capsicum =) But only when it's cooked until its soft.....

  7. I don't know if I "know" how to carve pumpkins, but taking to them with a knife seems like the logical thing haha!
    At woolworths they had MASSIVE crates of these $25 pumpkins and SO many people were getting sucked in!

  8. Haha! That is so cute! I might try that with orange capsicum next Halloween! :D

  9. It's so much easier! but you cant cut the top out and scoop out the seeds like you would a pumpkin, because it doesn't hold together
