It's Halloween again. We don't trick or treat here on the island but there is always a big party. This year I was recruited to be a witch on a haunted trail. Before I left for the party I carved two Jack O Lanterns
and put them out at the end of the driveway for people driving by. It is dark here, no streetlights and few houses close to the road. The pumpkins looked great.
And after bewitching a bunch of children I came home to my favorite Halloween treat, roasted pumpkin seeds. I extract them from the pumpkin "guts", salt lightly, toast in the oven until they are crispy and eat them hulls and all. Yumm.
