painting, carving, and roasting

yesterday i decided i had to carve a pumpkin.
& hannah decided she had to paint one.

like it?

& of couse i had to roast the seeds. i always do, even if i don't eat many. they are hard to chew!

i did half with olive oil and sea salt. the other half i made with brown rice syrup, turbinado sugar, and cinnamon. they turned out pretty good! really sticky though.

do you like pumpkin seeds? when's the last time you carved a pumpkin?

i think it's been years since i've carved one, hence my desire to do so. i should make it a yearly tradition. it's really fun!


  1. Love the pumpkin! Its been years since I made one too- pumpkin seeds on the other hand I do lots! I love that they take more effort to eat, means I eat less of them. Never tried the sweet ones though, I'll give them a go- usually I make spicy chili/cumin/coriander ones.

  2. claire - spicy sounds nice, i think i'll try that next time :)
