I talked about it. I did it. But I made one mistake: I forgot to save some seeds for planting. Oh well. I found a recipe on the internet that said to boil the seeds in salty water before roasting them. What the heck, I said. So I did.
They turned out very good. Toward the end of the roasting they started popping like popcorn. Pumpkin seeds all over the oven. But I'm not one to panic. I dutifully retrieved them and added them back into the fold.
I roasted the other half of the pumpkin they came from just before. And I did it all while watching American football on television. Before you know it, I'll be watching It's A Charlie Brown Christmas. Hark the herald angels sing...
Cherries are ripening
