2 days after, we headed to Target to buy stuff. Low and behold, pumpkins were $1.50 each. I can deal with that.
Anna and Happy (for only 5 minutes) went on carving the thing. It turned out great.
Same day, I decided to make pork buns (siopao asado). That one turned out great too. Posted it on Facebook and for some reason, a lot of people did ask for the recipe. What's up with that? It was tedious to make, but readily available on any Asian grocery or Filipino fast food chains.
Maybe it's the fact that those sold on the supermarket are freakin' expensive like that $6 pumpkins huh? Plus it's better making your own, at least you know what's in it and not some unknown meat.
