Can you believe McKenzie is four and we’ve never carved pumpkins? We’ve done the whole pumpkin-picking-&-hayride-on-a-farm thing, but we’ve never actually gotten around to carving the pumpkins…until now. Didn’t they turn out cute?
So our new tradition is carving pumpkins while watching Hocus Pocus (albeit, it’s a little above McKenzie’s age group right now). Regardless, we had a blast. I think traditions make holidays so much more fun, don’t you? Do you have any fun traditions for Halloween?
Anyhow, of course we saved all the seeds and baked them…what a treat! If you don’t know the recipe:
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Boil the pumpkin seeds with 1 tsp salt for 10 min.
- Spread seeds over a greased baking sheet and salt generously.
- Bake for 15 minutes (I like mine crispy.)
They were SO good…it tasted like popcorn…YUM. And it’s healthy too! Lots of fiber. ;)
