Happiness and Pumpkin Seeds

As I sit and think about what makes me happy, I’m ashamed (sort of) to say that often times it leads me to food. Let’s be honest, I’m not really ashamed of that fact. I love all the different holiday seasons and the fun foods, beverages, and events that go with them. I love the candy (read fun size Snickers) that comes with the month of October but my favorite thing, which I think is a bit underrated – Roasted pumpkin seeds! Each October I have a group of friends over for a pumpkin carving party. We have a great time and, in my opinion, one of the best parts is the pumpkin seeds. Have you ever tried them? All you have to do is heat your oven to about 300 degrees, toss those babies in melted butter and salt (after you clean them off, of course), bake for about 45 minutes, and voilà – Deliciousness!
