Pumpkin Seeds!





I happen to be a pretty big fan of the holidays. Starting in October with Halloween and right through January with my birthday :) The built in activities are the best part. Carving pumpkins on Halloween, baking pies for Thanksgiving and decorating Christmas trees and cookies in December. I'm ready for it.

Starting off the holiday season, we decorated our pumpkins! Guess who's is who? (note: pumpkin on the far right is a candle.)

Our pumpkins look great, and now we're eating pumpkin seeds. Win-win!

Pumpkin Seeds

One medium pumpkin
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cooking spray

  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Separate seeds from pumpkin flesh and add to a medium sized bowl.
  3. Toss seeds with olive oil and spread on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake at 325F for 35 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring seeds once during cooking time.
  5. Allow to cool. Eat!
