Tonight we carved our pumpkins that we bought from a local pumpkin patch. Our son wanted a smiley face and our daughter wanted a scary face. “It’s Halloween, so it HAS to be scary!”, she insisted. Our son dropped his pumpkin on the kitchen floor (on R.), which created a crack, so we decided his had a “mustache”.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
2. Put the seeds on a baking sheet to dry overnight. Use parchment paper underneath if desired. 24 hours of drying time is best. Remove the remaining pulp the next day, when dry.
3. The Next Day: Preheat oven 250 degrees F. Line baking sheet with foil.
4. Coat your dried seeds with melted butter or olive oil. Or maybe a little of *both*.
5. Sprinkle with sea salt. Toss every 15- 20 minutes. Bake for 1 hour until golden brown.
