I have happy childhood memories of going to the pumpkin patch in search of the plumpest pumpkin. This year was no different. I picked out a white pumpkin that was definitely not skinny! Michael chose a small multi-colored pumpkin & Pixy was gifted with the medium one [ which was later carved into her paw print with a giant dewclaw ]. My main motive for carving pumpkins this year was to collect the seeds.

After we extracted the the throw-up looking, orange crap inside, I separated the slippery seeds & baked them to perfection with pumpkin pie spice [ allspice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, & ground cloves ] + a sprinkle of sea salt. And hey! This is a smart snack: they’re filled with fiber, zinc, & contain FIVE grams of protein! Happy Halloween babes!
