Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Two days ago, I bought my first pumpkin to make a Jack O'Lantern. This is the one on the picture. At Sainsbury's, they call it a monster pumpkin, it costs three punds instead of two, which is the price of the "normal" size ones. Monster pumpkin is what it says on the label and what it said in the huge box where this one was. I suppose it means that it is a particularly big pumpkin. I don't see it. I mean, see on this post/picture is what you can find in Montreal, for five dollars, and they are much bigger. Not to mention cheaper. Monster pumpkin indeed! Anyway, this is the first one I buy this year, not the last. My wife thinks I would have more luck in one of these farmers' shops we have nearby, and I tend to agree. So it will be my project for the upcoming weekends: find a worthy pumpkin to be my master Jack O'Lantern.
