Pumpkin Everything and Unfiltered Truths

Last weekend I took the opportunity to turn my pie pumpkins into pumpkin puree, ready to add into a myriad of pumpkin recipes. And then I got down to business and started cooking.

First, since I had to clean out the pie pumpkins, I saved the seeds. My hubby came across a recipe for pumpkin seeds lightly sweetened with honey and cinnamon. It sounded good, so I enlisted my daughter's help to clean the seeds. She often asks for pumpkin seeds to snack on, so I figured she should be part of the process of preparing them.

Unfiltered truth: she mostly played with the seeds while I did a lot of the washing and cleaning.

The seeds turned out fine, though small in size due to the pumpkins they came from.
