Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Fall is my favorite. Seriously, I love summer, winter, spring & fall. But I don’t think that I anticipate any season more than FALL! Scarves, pumpkins, and leaves galore!

Last week we went to the pumpkin patch & got a few pumpkins to carve. Pax was not really a fan of participating in the carving~ but loved the finished product. He keeps saying “pumpkin” “happy” because Steve carved the pumpkin with a smiley face. It’s so adorable.

Today we added another word to his growing vocabulary…. Pumpkin Seeds. Seriously. Too cute. The child keeps asking for pumpkin seeds. The recipe below is the reason for that!

These are so good that I really want to go out & buy more pumpkins just so I can roast more seeds.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds, washed & patted dry

Melt butter & mix with other seasonings. Then toss with pumpkin seeds. Roast in the oven at 275 for approximately an hour & 15 minutes stirring occasionally. The end result:
