Pepitas!

The best part, by far, about carving pumpkins for Halloween is roasting the seeds.  We carve the jack-o'-lanterns and expect them to do their best at protecting us from evil spirits, but the best part is getting the seeds and making delicious snacks.
As soon as we were done carving, I cleaned the seeds and then laid them out on kitchen towels and waited for days for them to dry out.  Our two pumpkins yielded enough seeds to make two batches - I made one that was cinnamon and the other a traditional salt and pepper.
So now I have not only left over Halloween candy, but also pepitas. It's no wonder that Halloween is my absolutely favorite holiday, really.
