hello there

I am trying to remember the last time I grew something from a seed. I think it has to be before I left for college. We would have a garden every summer, and we would grow peas and carrots, and all kinds of things from seeds. But I forgot how thrilling it is when the tiny green leaves emerge their sleepy heads from the depths of a pot of dirt. I can’t wait to watch you grow, little sprouts.

pumpkin seeds: two ways

We decided to toast up some pumpkin seeds the other day as a snack.

The first kind we made was sweet and spicy from this recipe here. We left out the extra sugar at the end, and just sprinkled them with a little salt, and scout’s honor, they tasted just like kettle corn. It was like pumpkin seed crack.

The second kind was just the classic: little oil, salt, and pepper. Simple goodness.

Naked seeds get some sugar or salt clothes.

Thanksgiving means more pumpkins, and that means more pumpkin seeds that will need to be eaten. Oh darn.
