punkin' seeds....yummy.....

I decided to make use of the gazillions of pumpkin seeds (AKA guts) from our now happy jack o'lanterns.
I found this recipe and it is yummy.

Candied Pumpkin Seeds

1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt

*In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Spread into a greased baking pan.

*Bake, uncovered, at 250° for 45-50 minutes or until seeds are well-glazed, stirring occasionally. (I had to cook mine longer. Try one and see if it is crunchy enough for your taste.)
*Cool completely; break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 1 cup.
(I made several batches to use all of our seeds.)

Joel courageous man

As many of you know, there have been several teen suicides lately attributed to bullying. Forth Worth, Texas City Councilman Joel Burns shared his story recently.
Please watch this and pass this on to anyone that might benefit from it.

The kids love to take Grover with us for rides and when we head to the bus stop. Of course, he thinks the front seat is reserved for him.
