We were given several big pumpkins last Sabbath. As I cooked them down for pulp, I saved the seeds to make toasted pumpkin seeds.
There are plenty of recipes out there for toasted pumpkin seeds. I just combined a few of them. Basically I cleaned the pumpkin seeds, then tossed them in a bit of olive oil, salt, sugar, and spices (curry powder, coriander, and black pepper). Then I toasted them in the oven for about 10 minutes. They are yummy!

I also wanted to announce a new blog to you: Barry and I have started a blog on living a simple, uncomplicated life that avoids getting caught up in the rat race for money and stuff. We want this blog to be a venue for sharing thoughts, ideas, projects, and more. It's still in its infant stage but we hope to post more thoughts and projects soon.
You can find it here or at http://www.barryandchristy.blogspot.com
(In case you are wondering, we changed from our wordpress blog for customizability reasons.)
