Fall Traditions

We have a little tradition around here in the fall. We go to the pumpkin patch, find the perfect pumpkins, then come home and roast the seeds! Every year we've had Isaac we've done this and every year the anticipation of "pumpkin patch day" grows greater! This year, young Ike had a ball (especially since this year we went with all the local cousins/third cousins(?).

Pumpkin Patch Day seems to be a grand launch to the holiday season! From here on out we'll be looking forward to all the wonderful things that the last couple months of the year bring!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds:

Place seeds on large cookie sheet. Drizzle with EVOO (about one to two tbsps) and mix the seeds until all the seeds are covered with the oil. Sprinkle with seasoning salt or sea salt and roast in the oven at 250 degrees for 2 hours. Raise heat to 350 degrees and roast for 12-15 minutes longer.

We ate all our pumpkins seeds so fast that I don't have a picture. I do, however, have another batch in the oven right now. I'll post a picture when they come out (if I can get to them before Ike does) and hopefully a picture will entice you into making them yourself! They are truly worth getting your hands gooey!
