HOWL Pumpkin Carving

18 Women gathered to feast, carve pumpkins and watch scary movies. There was fabulous food: Spooky Sloppy Janes (the better half of Sloppy Joe!), duck bacon wrapped asparagus, smoked salmon, pork stew (From Stark Hollow Farm pork!), pumpkin curry soup, roast chicken, baked kale chips, garlic spaghetti squash, salads, apple cider, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, ice cream....are you hungry yet?

The vote came in for the movie Insidious, barely squeezing out Silence of the Lambs, always a favorite.

Leigh's pumpkin appeared to be the winner in the most sexy category: The Enchantress

The Chicken Condo Cometh
