carving pumpkins; still love gourds

My friends, Eva and Peki (two really wonderful people), came over today to carve pumpkins for Halloween weekend. Eva brought a lovely Kabocha squash.

I usually don't like pumpkin-carving (I know, call me a loser) but somehow it's way funner with friends... and soup! I had a great time and with all the pumpkin seeds, we made a yummy snack.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds:

Drizzle a little olive oil on the seeds, then sprinkle on some salt. Toast them at 325 degrees Celsius for around 15-20 minutes until they smell good and are browning. Take 'em out and eat 'em up! Everybody loves pumpkin seeds. Yay for protein and delicious simplicity!

The picture of me... is... unfortunate. But I don't really mind. And I like the second one with me sneaking pumpkin seeds =)
