Seedy Business

Here's an image that would be a good start for a fetching seasonal project. Place cards for Thanksgiving? Gift tags for a loaf of pumpkin bread or a bag of roasted seeds? Holiday card?

And here is a healthy alternative to eating candy stolen from kids' trick or treat bags (or something to munch on until they go to bed). The little tricksters could probably use some fiber to go along with the sugar too.


Pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2-1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder

Wash seeds thoroughly to remove as much slime as possible. Leaving some is fine. Spread seeds on paper towel to dry for a day or at least over night. Mix together all other ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, pour mix over seeds and stir until well covered. Lay seeds out in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours.

I love pumpkin seeds just like that! The graphic is a keeper too. I love everything about pumpkins and their role in fall celebrations!
