Jack O Lantern Ideas

We carved our pumpkins last week in time for trick or treating yesterday. I happen to think we did a fairly good job, considering we all we had was an old school knife and not a fancy kit.

We also roasted the pumpkin seeds - yum! Clear the seeds of the pumpkin, toss in olive oil and salt, spread on a cookie sheet and roast at 250 degrees for a couple hours until they are nicely golden brown. The house will smell delish as well.

Love the can idea!

Man, I wish my kitchen was done so I could roast pumpkin seeds - they sound yummy.

Hope third time is a charm for your countertops!
