Today we started our Halloween preparations by carving a pumpkin.
Lara wanted to make a 'Cannibal Pumpkin' so we bought a large pumpkin and 2 small pumpkins (we couldn't decide in the shop which small pumpkin would be best so bought 2!)
As it was a nice sunny afternoon we took the pumpkins outside to carve them
The little pumpkin was put inside the big ones mouth.
After we'd finished with our pumpkin we decided to make some roasted pumpkin seed snacks.
We washed the seeds in water and then spread them on a baking tray. We put a few good lugs of olive oil over the seeds and added plenty of salt, garlic powder and ground chilli flakes.
The seeds were baked in the oven at 180C for about 10 minutes until the seeds were lightly golden brown. Once cooled they are a tasty snack for grazing on.
