happy halloween

just a few more hours and its officially halloween... my very favorite holiday. unfortunately we don't have any exciting plans this year because jackey has to work. i think i will stay in, hand out candy, watch a scary movie or two (any suggestions?) and enjoy the last of my roasted pumpkin seeds.
we picked out our pumpkin the other day and i couldn't wait to carve it and to roast the seeds (most of which are already gone). i found so many delicious sounding recipes for roasted pumpkin seeds that it was difficult to settle on just one. in the end i choose simple and basic: coat seeds with 2 tbls of melted butter, add a little salt and some garlic. spread on a cookie sheet and roast at 300 deg F for 20-25 min.
this years pumpkin carving was based on "the scream" by edvard munch.
