Pumpkins and their Seeds

This will be a short one since I am actually on vacation (again….I know).  I should be back later in the week though and of course I will tell you all about it!

Just in case you are wondering, C and I are heading to sunny Jacksonville, Florida to hit the beach for a few days and see a football game.

Anywho…..I thought I’d share with you a bit about our Halloween!  Yeah, I know. I’m really late on this.'s our pumpkins! Can you tell who did what?
Of course you can!  Disney and a football team (Michigan State Spartans).  Duh.  Are we stereotypical male/female or what? 

After we carved our pumpkins, we baked some yummy pumpkin seeds.  Oh man I love those things.  In fact, I love them so much that I went out and bought 4 more pumpkins after Halloween (clearance priced woo hoo) just for the seeds.

Last Saturday C and I spent the day dreaming up pumpkin seed recipes. Some were tasty and some were a definite bust!

Flavors we tried:
  • Plain with salt
  • Season Salt
  • Chipotle Chili powder and salt
  • Mustard powder with salt (fail)
  • Dill powder and salt (fail)
  • Sriracha sauce and salt
  • Soy Sauce soaked
  • Garlic salt (fail)

My favorites were the plain, chipotle and sriracha.  I will definitely be making them again with those ingredients!  I realize we were reaching with a few of those, but we were having fun pulling spices out of the cabinet to try!

Do you have any pumpkin seed recipes you love?

  1. Wow those are some interesting flavors lol

  2. Those pumpkins are awesome! Much better than the one I helped my three year old niece make. I'm not a fan of pumpkin seeds, but definitely sounds fun experimenting!
