Try It Tuesday — Pumpkin Seeds

The other night, Huff the Hubs and I decided to get pumpkins to carve. We were going to go to a local pumpkin patch, but when we got there, it cost $10 a person just to get inside. But with us trying to be gazelles and get out of debt, we couldn’t bring ourselves to it.

Enter Aldi and their $2.99 pumpkins. These gourds are ENORMOUS. I’m talkin’ Cinderella’s carriage big. So after waddling up the stairs, Huff the Hubs did the gross work of carving the top and emptying out the insides.

Don’t be jelly. That hunk of man is ALL mine.

We almost threw the seeds out, but I remembered something I saw on Pinterest, so I had him save them.

The recipe is so simple! Only three ingredients! I love recipes like that–its a lot harder to screw it up.

After you’ve gutted your pumpkin, wash the seeds and let them dry. I left mine out overnight.

The next day, put the seeds into a bowl and pour 2 teaspoons melted butter and a pinch of salt over them. Stir, and then place them on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes and voila! A healthy snack!
