Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Every year, after cleaning out the pumpkin guts, Daddy heads to the kitchen to make some yummy roasted pumpkin seeds while we tend to the details of our Jack-o-lantern creations. I'm sure many of you share in this same tradition. But, just in case you don't and you'd like to give it a try, I thought I'd share with you his recipe.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

1-3 pumpkins worth of seeds, cleaned and dried
EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)
garlic powder, or granulated garlic
onion powder

After you have cleaned your seeds and dried them thoroughly, drizzle them with EVOO and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle them evenly with salt (as much as you might salt your every-day foods) and a bit more generously with the garlic and onion powder. 
Place the cookie sheet in an oven pre-heated to 225 degrees F and bake for about 45-60 minutes, taking them from the oven about every 15 minutes to stir them. You want them to be golden and toasty! Let them cool and then start munching! Store them in an air-tight container at room temperature.
