Halloween~ Carving Jack-O-Lanterns and Roasting Pumpkin Seeds: Level B

First, we selected our pumpkins.
We cut off the lids.
We cut around the stems.
Next, we cleaned out the inside of our pumpkins.
We took out the seeds and the pulp.
We saved the seed for the cooks in the kitchen.
We threw away the pulp.
The pumpkins did not have very many seeds.
In Burma, the pumpkins had many more seeds.

We drew our faces on paper.
Then, we started to carve the pumpkins.

We carved eyes, noses, mouths, teeth, eyebrows, mustaches, and ears.
Ma La Ki took photographs the whole time.

Some people were carving pumpkins.
Other people were telling stories and laughing.

When the four pumpkins were done, we put them up on the counter.
We lit candles inside.
Now, they are called "Jack-O-Lanterns."

The Jack-O-Lanterns were beautiful.
We turned off the lights and watched them glow in the dark.The cooks in the kitchen mixed the seeds with oil and spices.
  • 1 1/2 cups of seeds.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Spices to taste.
Then, they spread the seeds on baking sheets.
They baked the seeds in the oven for 30 minutes.
The oven was set at 300 degrees.
Everyone liked the roasted pumpkin seeds.
They tasted very good.
By the end of the day, they were all gone!

Thoo Thoo and Chong were happy.
