Heirloom Pumpkin Carving

When I think of pumpkins, I usually think of this...

But, pumpkins can be so much more exciting...

The other day, Michael and I went to Trader Joe's to pick up some fresh cut flowers for my mother-in-law's birthday. While walking in, we spotted a display of pumpkins of all different varieties. We pawed through all of the round and not so round gems in search of the most imperfectly amazing pumpkin. I found the wartiest, behemothest looking one of the bunch, named it, and brought it home.

Today, we finally carved it and roasted its guts. Here are the pictures!
