I hope all of you have gone apple picking or carved pumpkins.
And if you’re living in the DC area- wine tasting!
I’ve been lucky enough over the last couple of weekends to do a little bit of everything. Fall is wonderful in Virginia, leaves turn wonderful colors and the weather is perfectly crisp. Is it like that where you live?
It’s always fun to carve pumpkins…
…and then eat the seeds!
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds*
Preheat the oven to 375°F. After taking out all of the pumpkin seeds out of the pumpkin, rinse them off. Then spread them out on a cooking sheet. Pour olive oil over the pumpkin seeds, and mix it together so each seed is covered with olive oil. Then sprinkle salt and pepper over the pumpkin seeds. Mix all of the ingredients together once more.
Bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes. Keep checking on the seeds, once they are golden brown they are ready. Take them out of the oven and let them cool off. Enjoy!
*There are no specifics for this recipe. This all depends how many seeds you have and how much salt/pepper you like.
