Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Last night I came home to the “spooky” sight of Jack-o-lanterns staring out at me from the bay windows of my house. Erin had been busy carving pumpkins earlier with her friend Mike, who is in town for a visit. I LOVE carving pumpkins, but I am pretty terrible at it (as evidenced by last year’s cross-eyed owl, pictured below). But, what I lack in carving skills I make up for in willing-to-get-my-hands-dirty skills, which come in handy when making toasted pumpkin seeds.

Erin made a perfectly toasted batch last night by simply tossing the rinsed seeds in olive oil, seasoning with garlic salt, and baking in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I can’t wait to carve my pumpkin this year. I am going to take a stab at these Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds!20111020-105616.jpg20111020-101826.jpg
