Gone are the days when carving a pumpkin, meant this:
Now…pumpkin carving is fancy. And then, there’s “decorating” your pumpkin, with paint, feathers, cool colors and anything/anywhere else your imagination takes you.
Patrick and Mary’s Vineyard Vines Pumpkin…Cutest pumpkin I think I’ve ever seen. The pumpkin matches the logo on Patrick’s shirt.
And this is what I did with the seeds they cleaned out of that pumpkin. This was just a different twist on what I used to do with them.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Just separate the seeds from the “guts”, then boil them in saltwater for 20 minutes (this cleans them as well as salts the insides of the seeds). NOTE: they will look grey after you boil them! Then toss them in a bowl with some melted butter and salt and bake them on a baking sheet for 30-45 minutes at 300 degrees, stirring occasionally. Roast them until they’re golden brown! This photo is a stock photo, as I forgot to take a picture before we devoured them. 🙂

I love when I go to a friend’s house, and she tells me “the gauntlet was thrown down by your blog”, in regards to dressing up your fall planters, or front porch, as it was in E’s case. Love it!!
Happy Fall…Oh, and yeah, Way to Go Bears! Nice game!!
