Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! We still have pretty young kids in the house so Halloween is still a bit of a mystery for them but tonight Maya will trick or treat for the first time so that ought to speed up the learning curve. 
Today we carved our pumpkins and roasted the seeds. Here are a couple yummy seed recipes:

Sweet Mix:
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 TB melted butter
1 TB sugar
1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice

Wash and pat dry your seeds. Toss the seeds with the butter, sugar and spices. Heat oven to 300 degrees and bake on a baking sheet for 45 - 60 minutes.

Salty Mix:
Pumpkin seeds
Olive oil
Soy sauce

Douse and toss liberally with olive oil, salt and soy sauce.  Roast in 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until they are nicely browned and crispy.
