Pumpkin Seed Spice
Yesterday I finally allowed the pumpkin carving to take place. I'm sorry, but this is something I dread every year. Why? It's messy. Yep, that's all. Just messy. And my girls already make more messes than I can keep up with, so the thought of one more just puts me over the edge.
After scooping Megan's pulp (that she kept calling "kelp") from her pumpkin ...
Me: Meg, just put all that stuff in the trash. That's why I brought it over here.
Megan: But I want to keep the seeds to bake them.
Me: I've tried that before, and they never turn out right. I don't know why. I can never get the spice right or something.
Megan oh so sarcastic: The "spice"? You mean "salt"?
Me: Uh, yeah. That.
