My grandson, Brandon, a graduate student at Duke University’s Marine Lab in North Carolina, sent us pictures of his anglerfish jack-o-lantern. As you can see from the picture of a real anglerfish, he nailed it! (He used a lollipop for the lantern and the fins are made from a cereal box.) The anglerfish, with its gaping maw and fearsome jagged teeth is also called, appropriately, “the devil fish,” but there is something else in these pictures that can be scary, especially for those of us…
After I published the new recipe for Picadillo with a picture showing it with a side of Pumpkin Tamales, many of you asked me to share the tamale recipe too.
Biscuits that taste like pumpkin bread! The optional currants will cost you an extra 1.3 net carbs per biscuit. (Gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and low-carb.)
I promised to report on how the great pumpkin experiment in Wishing for a Blue Moon turned out. We harvested a total of four pumpkins in spite of our very short, cool summer.
