How Megan attempted to win a pumpkin carving contest with the pumpkin keg

Did y'all catch that DIY pumpkin keg video that went viral? The moment I saw it I thought, "now THERE'S a Megan-simple pumpkin carving project!" Much like my cooking skills, my crafting skills are, well, let's just say sub-par. I was invited to my friends 5th annual Halloween pumpkin carving contest and I accepted with the express intent of trying my hand at the pumpkin keg. The video makes it seem so simple, spoiler alert: it wasn't!


Recycle your halloween pumpkin as yummy refrigerator soup

Buying a huge vegetable, setting it outside for a few days, then throwing it away bothers me. Inspiration hit when a friend explained "refrigerator soup," made from whatever veg was a little past its prime. If this soup works for slightly saggy veg, couldn't it work for my old pumpkins too?
