Happy Belated Halloween!

From halloween

We were running a little behind this year, just barely managing to get the pumpkins carved yesterday, but that is good because that means I have a backlog of blog (backblog?) material, which I will need if I am planning to partake in NaBloPoMo this month. (By making sure I have at least one post per day.) My original plan was to do NaNoWriMo but there is just no way. Maybe next year.

Quotes from Luke this morning:

After I asked my son who doesn't like to finger paint, refuses hand stamps, and never wants a temporary tattoo, if he would help me sort through the pumpkin guts to get the seeds out, "Eww! NO! I don't want to get pumpkin innards on my hands, that's gross."

Me: "I need to look up a recipe for baked pumpkin seeds."
Luke: "Just put the pumpkin seeds in a pan with some salt and olive oil!"
Me: "I know, but I don't know what temperature or for how long."
Luke: "Oh, well I can't tell you that."

Luke is wise beyond his years, isn't he? Too funny about "just put them in a pan with some salt and olive oil". Thank goodness Linda was here to cook ours. She used a stick of butter, salt, and I think she put them on about 250 degrees until they were golden brown. Took like an hour I think. How did yours turn out? I love your costume!

I did my seeds at 350 for about half an hour. They are pretty yummy.
