So that was what we did Friday during MEA vacation along with this…
I did it different this year. I cleaned the pumpkin seeds and then fried them for about 20 minutes in about a cup of oil with garlic salt, seasoned salt, seasoned pepper and just a touch of hot peppers. Drain on a napkin and then I put them in a 400* oven for 20 minutes to dry out and crisp up a bit more. They are the best we’ve ever had and also, I used a cup of oil and got but 2 Tlb less of a cup of oil so not bad in the fattening part.
So that’s that for not guys. Mike was home yesterday and starts school this evening. I followed him around yesterday helping him do a few things he wanted to get done and then we watched a movie, “How to Train Your Dragon” (now that was a cute movie). I think I’m having a few issues with Mike doing this, I’m a bit depressed and ready to cry but I know it’s just part of the growing up and I don’t want him to feel funny about it all so I’ll just keep my mouth and tear ducts closed and just enjoy the time with him. I know it’s just getting closer to “that” time, time to move on, grow up and spread his wings. I can’t wait really, but yesterday and today…I’m ready to have that little boy back.
Take care my friends and have a blessed day.
