so last night, in the face of the impending storm, aj and i celebrated fall properly...by carving pumpkins!
and of course, as a special fall treat, we made roasted pumpkin seeds!
if you've never made roasted pumpkin seeds, it's simple:
1. you take the seeds that you pull out of the center of the pumpkin
2. rinse them off (and pat dry....this step might not be crucial, but I always do it so that my seeds get nice and dry but not burnt)3. toss the seeds with a bit of olive oil and sea salt
4. bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until they're dried out and crunchy
and wha-la! pumpkin seeds. perfect for fall snacking or salads. healthy and so yummy.
how have you been celebrating fall?
