Favourite Things Friday Vol. 9

Every year my in house taste tester and I carve pumpkins for Halloween!

It is just one of the many nerdy things we like to do together. I love it!!

I am no artist so mine are usually pretty lame. My sweet is the creative one; he always does something funky… this year he did the death star, from Star Wars.

My favourite part of the whole experience is roasting the pumpkin seeds. YUM!

Sift all the seeds out of the pumpkin guts. Rinse them well under cold water and pick out any pumpkin bits.
Spread on a sheet pan and let them sit out over night to dry out.

Once they are dry, toss with 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil and 1-2 tsp. seasoning salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder and ½ tsp. pepper. Heat your oven to 250 degrees.
Spread the spiced seeds out in a single layer and bake in the oven for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. 

They are crunchy and salty, the perfect Halloween snack!

Happy Friday Everybody!!
