It’s National Pumpkin Day. This spectacular squash comes in different shapes and sizes — can be served as a mouthwatering main meal or a delectable dessert and the seeds are delicious, too. If you don’t like them, the birds outside will.
Don’t be too quick to throw out those yucky, slimey guts, instead create an invigorating facial mask. The pulp contains enzymes that dissolve dead skin cells, leaving you with smoother skin.
Oh, and our favorite part — you can carve them into dramatic designs and use them for decorations everywhere. Whether scary and spooky or silly and screwy, pumpkins are as much a part of the Halloween tradition as costumes and candy.
