It’s my favorite month of the year, October, and I am loving every second of it. My kids have already started talking about their favorite project for the month, the annual carving of the jack o lantern.
Pumpkins are the ingredient of choice this month from coffee to deserts, to snacks. I know this isn’t a home maker blog, but I will post my recipe for pumpkin seeds below, just because they are awesome.
But can you imagine this from the pumpkin’s point of view?
That’s the writing prompt of the week. Write for ten minutes about October’s pumpkin consumption from the gourds point of view. Leave your free write in the comments below, and I’ll post the best one on October 13.
As always, I’m still looking for submissions for last weeks prompt, Write a Cinquain. There’s still plenty of time, I’m posting the winner on October 6.
Now, as promised, my pumpkin seed recipe
As many pumpkin seeds as can be found in an average sized pumpkin, or about one cup
Sea Salt, 2 tsp
Olive Oil, 2tbs
Preheat the oven to 350.
Pour salt, oil and seeds into a plastic sandwich bag. Shake the hell out of it.
Lay the seeds flat on a cookie sheet, make sure they’re not laying on each other.
Bake for ten minutes, stir them around, and bake them for another ten minutes.
Hide them from the kids.
