Pumpkin Patch

Here are some pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago.  The pumpkins will be turned into jack-o-lanterns by my talented husband.  But we both know that the real reason that he carves the pumpkins is to get the seeds.  He makes amazing pumpkin seeds.  Recipe & instructions below.

Pumpkin Seeds

For those that haven’t ever roasted pumpkin seeds before just dig them out of the pumpkin and remove the seeds from the pumpkin flesh.  In a bowl mix the seeds with salt and cayenne pepper (or what ever spice you might like).  Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes (or until they are lightly browned) stirring every 10 minutes.
