Quick Pumpkin Supper

Our Halloween Pumpkin has done his job outside and moved into the kitchen today. 
It was divided it in two halves; the goo and seeds scraped out. 
Then the slices were baked unseasoned at 350° F for about 40 minutes.
Some of them I peeled and used today, the rest went into the freezer for future dishes.

A simple cheese sauce and rice.
Grilled chicken breast, apple slices, onion and pumpkin pieces. Seasoned with pumpkin spice. 
That was the dinner of tonight!

See you in a fortnight!

Today's Outlook

-1°C (30,2°F), but sunny.
I walked around the house and took some shots out of different windows. 

View from the upper window towards north-west, Eastport, Me.
... towards south-west, foam caps on the water.
..east, the garden is now permanently in the shade of the large trees.
..view from my kitchen window. Just ignore that s&^# power pole!
Glowing red in the sunshine, rose bushes at the border of my garden.
First ice on the brackish water near Herring Cove Beach 
Cold out here, but beautiful!

I went back in the afternoon when the tide was out again. 
See the difference.

In the frozen air bubbles, pebbles and tang along the waters edge I think I saw ....

... a bird's face
