Pumpkin Plan of Salvation

Since I don't have much to say regarding today's gag,* I thought I'd share the story of when the missionaries with me in Maribor threw our branch a Halloween party. We carved pumpkins, gave candy to the primary children, and bobbed for apples. Afterwards, I took a couple of the pumpkins back to my apartment and made pumpkin pie from scratch.

The only problem was that the pumpkin used in pumpkin pie is different than the pumpkin used to carve jack o-lanterns. When I cut into the pie with an entire district of very hungry and excited missionaries watching, we got something that tasted like pumpkin pie but had the texture of spaghetti noodles. It was not one of my prouder cooking moments as a missionary.

*Other than it's a great idea and I'm surprised there haven't been any industrious missionaries who have already done this.
