The Great Pumpkin

I just carved this pumpkin today and I couldn't wait until Hallowe'en to see it in all its glory.   I still have another one to carve, but this is a lot of work and I was all pumpkined out by the time I finished.  I'll do the other one tomorrow.
 I love munching on pumpkin seeds when they are still warm from being baked in the oven. P umpkin seeds are so easy to bake, just toss them in a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle on some salt or other seasoning (I used smoked garlic chipotle salt) and bake at 275 for about 45-50 minutes.  Shake them up a bit as they are baking a couple of times so they cook evenly.  YUM!
