spill the guts


So after much digging around the internet, I stumbled upon a Bobby Flay recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds... but alas, I didn't have the right chili powders in my pantry, so the recipe took a turn... and we ended up improvising a bit... ok, a lot. We took the washed seeds from three fabulously carved pumpkins (yes, I am going to too my own horn here), a tablespoon of olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and a dash of worcestershire sauce - no measurements, just sort of eyeballed. Into the oven at 275 deg F  for 1 hour and taa-daa... yummy pumpkin seeds! Off to munch on some more!

Mmm, there's an idea. The boyfriend and I always have them roasted in our salads, but we've never experimented with seasoning them first. I'm inspired!

Awesome! We usually just butter and salt them, but maybe I'll give this a shot. Happy Halloween!

I need to make some pumpkin pie. Grew the pumpkins, now I have to do something with them. Tried to make roasted seeds one year. We didn't care for them, I think they just weren't spicy enough.
