In My Kitchen - November 2014

It's time for another round of the very cool monthly happening called "In My Kitchen" run by Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.

So here we go....

This Month in my Kitchen...

October was a great a word Halloween!

We had our final major harvest for the year almost 10 lbs of Sweet Potatoes! Not bad for 4 plants for $1! 

It's all about the pumpkins this post!

We carved a scene from "The Walking Dead" for our porch pumpkins...

Scooped out the insides and made Buckwheat Pumpkin Pancakes...

Dried the Seeds for Snacks

and Pumpkin Seed Brittle Yum!

This year as Halloween Treats, family and friends received:
Conjure Cookies

Ginger-dead-men Skeleton Cookies

And of course in keeping with the "Walking Dead" theme, Zombie Cookies.

This month also happens to be our 2nd Wedding Anniversary, time flies when you're having fun! 

While October was great, November is going to be an adventurous month. We will be in India  for 3 weeks for our Hindu Wedding! I'm hoping to post from Amma's kitchen! :)

Please make sure you stop in and take a glance at everyone else's kitchens!

So tell me...What's happening in your kitchen this month?
