pumpkin

Fall... I never appreciated this season until recently. I always thought it was a boring time of year. No pool parties, no fireworks, just leaves changing and the wait till Xmas seemed way too long. But I think those are the things I appreciate about fall now- Cooler and drier weather, beautiful sky, awaiting Xmas by looking for the best recipes for the holiday season.

This weekend, I came across a bowl of pumpkin seeds that needed a better use than just going into trash. I found this recipe from The Hazel Bloom : http://www.thehazelbloom.com/2010/10/sweet-spicy-and-savory-pumpkin-seeds/



I didn't have rosemary, so I used dried thyme, but it worked out fine. At first, the combination of flavor seemed funky, but then it was addictive :) everyone enjoyed them and they were a hit!
