Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it seems like each year it’s here and gone before you know it! Did anyone notice how this year they didn’t show The Nightmare Before Christmas at all on ABC Family Free Form??? I was especially disappointed, because that’s one of my favorites. Thankfully, they still had Hocus Pocus and the Addams Family, so I was pretty content while carving my pumpkin.
Pumpkin carving is one of those traditions you either love or hate. I (obviously) love it, it’s something my family would do together growing up and I’m a sentimental sap so I love to keep it going. It’s a creative way to pass an hour or two, a little bit challenging, and you wind up getting a snack out of it! Not only are pumpkin seeds delicious when done right, but they have a ton of health benefits too. So thanks, mom and dad, for helping us carve all those years back and for making us a snack to boot!
If you still have some seeds laying around from your own carving adventure, I’d suggest a few different versions: Chili & Lime if you’re looking for a kick, Italian if you’re looking for something savory, or Fall Spice if you want something warm and sweet. If you have your own way of roasting your pumpkin seeds, I’d love to hear them too!
