"13 Days Of Halloween"...Day 1...

Welcome to day 1 of my "13 Days Of Halloween" Blog fest! So glad you could make it. To kick this off, we are going to start with a recipe. Homemade Roasted Ranch Pumpkin Seeds....yum! A Halloween tradition in my house. We have to have his and her containers though because someone eats mine every year. This year I am going to hide ;)

How to:
Remove seeds from the pumpkin. Rinse the seeds under cold water in a colander picking out the pulp and stringy stuff. You must do this while the pulp is still wet.

Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread your seeds out on it. Some like to coat the seeds with oil or non stick cooking spray, but I try to skip this step (especially when making the ranch ones). Working quickly, while the seeds are still wet, sprinkle powdered ranch dressing seasoning. I add just a little bit of salt as well.

Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes. Leave them in a little longer if you want them crispier.

Let them cool then store them in an air tight container. Mmmm....delicious!
Day of 2 will bring a spookingly cute paper bag mini album! Happy Monday to you!
