I always love roasting pumpkin seeds after carving my pumpkin. This year was a disappointment though. Sadly the pumpkin I picked barely had any seeds. Any tips on how to pick a seedy pumpkin?
Here is my pumpkin this year - a witch's brew pumpkin! Spooky isn't it? I followed the steps outlined in my Pumpkin Carving Tutorial here.

To create some different shading for the 'smoke', I thinned out the pumpkin meat from the outside. If you remove the orange outer skin, it lets more of the light form the candle through, allowing for the appearance of a different shade.

Remember, don't toss those seeds away, roast them for a delicious snack! (Just don't burn them like I did).
Are you carving a pumpkin this year? HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
