Like I’ve said, I’m getting into the pumpkin spirit! My mom bought a pumpkin for our front steps, so I decided I should gut it and roast the seeds! Well all the props go to my boyfriend for this one since, he technically did most….or all…of the work on this. He brought the pumpkin inside and totally gutted it, he even made me a jack-o-lantern. All I did was wash the seeds and throw some spices on them.
I had made pumpkin seeds in the past but they DID NOT come out as good as they did this time. The key is to dry them, otherwise they won’t get crispy!
Also can we talk about the best jack-o-lantern ever! I love him (the jack-o-lantern but also my boyfriend.)
