Spooky Saturday

Saturday, October 29, 2005

Halloween activities abound today. We were very crafty this morning and among many other things, made ghosties and hung them in the trees. Cupcakes this afternoon. Maybe Scooby Doo tonight. Family fun. Family fun...So much easier when Mr. C. is here too.

For Jase, in Case you find yourself with a few pumpkin seeds on hand; a simple, tasty snack:)

BAKED PUMPKIN SEEDS

Pumpkin seeds
1/2 stick butter, melted
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Wash pumpkin seeds after removing from pumpkin. Soak in melted butter for 5 minutes. Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spread seeds on it, keeping seeds from touching. Sprinkle with a little salt and bake 2-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

Happy Halloween Weekend!

    I knew that Canadian someone was not you. :) (it wasn't any of my real readers)
    Not enough people roast the seeds. It's become tradition here. Plant half eat the rest. YUMMY!
    Have a happy Halloween!

    Have you considered going into business for holiday events? You could decorate...you seem to know all this stuff...your creations are always so cool.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    you are my very own Martha Stewart!
    I am definitely doing the seeds thing and although we don't celebrate Haloween in Greece, I'll give the ghosts a go too.
    Thanks for the inspiration Cathy xx

    Cathy..I know u wouldn't delete my comments silly! It happens sometimes...No biggie.

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    Well Cathy, I am massively impressed with the customer response levels on this blog. Time to market for the new recipe product a mere 1 day from suggestion to publishing. I have instructed my pumpkin carving team to save the seeds and cook according to your recipe, but I shall be doing pinchitos as per my recipe:

    The pumpkin seeds bring back some great memories! Hallowe'en's just not the same without them!

  1. Blogger christina said:

    I still have to squish through the guts of the three pumpkins we carved today to get the seeds out and then I'll be roasting them like every year. Yum!

    Lois;
    Knew you would know, but had to say it anyway:) I forgot to save some to plant. We haven't before but want to in the spring.
    Marel and Vani;
    Yes, tuck it away for next year; I never used to like them but find them tasty now, and my 4 year old loves them.
    Ruthie;
    Purely hobbies, but thanks for the compliment. Craftiness runs in the family.
    Chloe;
    OMG: Martha Stewrat I am not, but thanks (I think!;)
    Heidi;
    Still having a good weekend, I hope:)
    Jase;
    Sorry, I don't do pumpkin soup, or homemade pumpkin pie (get that from my mum)...but pinchitos mmmm. I'll have to check the recipe out. I might have to have my pumpkin team call your pumpkin team.
    Ladymiss;
    Thanks for popping by. Love love the Halloween season.
    Christina;
    Enjoy! And have fun teaching your boys all these wonderful traditions. Do they brag that they have such a cool Canadian mum?

    Wow, what a creative day. Sounds like lots of fun.

    I tried the seeds one year and they were nasty, lol! I guess I didn't know what the hell I was doing. I'll have to give it another try.
