I finally carved my pumpkin. Iâ€™m much more concerned with the seeds than the face. 🙂
I made my two favorite seeds:
Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Seeds (for 1 pumpkinâ€™s worth):
- Two heaping spoonfuls of brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
- Two tablespoons of water
Original Pumpkin Seeds (for 1 pumpkinâ€™s worth):
- 1/2 â€“1 1 tablespoon salt (to taste)
- Drizzle olive oil
To make these simple yet delicious pumpkin seeds, just mix ingredients with cleaned seeds. Spread out the seeds on the bottom of a greased glass casserole dish and bake at 380 for 25 minutes. Stir together occasionally throughout. Note that the brown sugar ones will caramelize stick together (yum!).
And then I decorated. Up went the pumpkin:

I slept through most of the afternoon 😉 and rose to eat:
Soup and grilled cheese and spinach sammie!
Off for dinner and to get ready for Meganâ€™s party! 🙂
How do you do pumpkin seeds? Thereâ€™s so many easy ways to roast them!
