I could have imagined it, but I felt like there was almost a chill in the air this morning. Like I could almost wear a light jacket for 10 minutes over my tshirt and shorts. But the calendar says fall is coming whether or not the weather here agrees. There are some new autumn card designs in the shop to get you in the crispy leaves and hot tea mood.
Carved up some jack o lantern cookies this morning, so we can munch on them while we carve real pumpkins. Gingerbread cookies this time. I made sugar cookie versions last year. Halloween is fun. You don’t get to carve gourds on any old holiday.
We are doing our part of being young homeowners by planning on staying home on Halloween, and being available to hand out candy to the little ones. I feel like its our duty. Without us and grandparents, there would be no one at the doorbells to provide the treats.
Also been up to some sewing treats. I have such a hard time keeping surprises.
We decided to toast up some pumpkin seeds the other day as a snack.
The first kind we made was sweet and spicy from this recipe here. We left out the extra sugar at the end, and just sprinkled them with a little salt, and scout’s honor, they tasted just like kettle corn. It was like pumpkin seed crack.
The second kind was just the classic: little oil, salt, and pepper. Simple goodness.
Naked seeds get some sugar or salt clothes.
Thanksgiving means more pumpkins, and that means more pumpkin seeds that will need to be eaten. Oh darn.
