Fall is my favorite time of year. Aside from being able to layer clothing again, October-November has Halloween and Thanksgiving. The only two holidays I take seriously.
In the past, I planned my Halloween costumes months in advance.
I would strategically plan to go on as many haunted hayrides and apple picking excursions as I could fit in two months. But this year was different. I’m actively paying down credit debt and spending money on a Halloween costume felt frivolous. Also, for the first time in a long time I wasn’t in the mood to do it. The fact that I didn’t have the energy to actively enjoy one of my favorite holidays was sad to me. So I bought a pumpkin and decided to roast sea salt and garlic roasted pumpkin seeds!
It’s easy to make and takes approx. 45 min to roast.
Step 1.) Cut Top Off Of Pumpkin.
Step 2.) Separate Seeds From Guts.
Step 3.) Arrange Seeds In A Single Layer, Season, and Roast.
Step 4.) Enjoy!
Also, filling your pumpkin half way with water and carving an extra hole on the side for a bowl and down-stem is a great way to get the Fall Festivities started!
