Potluck Pumpkin Carving

We don’t make a huge deal out of Halloween, but I thought it would be fun to invite some friends over for a low key evening of carving pumpkins and hanging out.   I have a tendency to go overboard when I host parties so I tried this time to keep things simple.  The guestlist...
