Our Favorite Fall Snack: Popped Pumpkin Seeds

I can’t help but share. This is our absolute favorite fall snack

Popped Pumpkin Seeds
Place them on a hot pan with a bit of olive oil. 
Cover the top so you don’t get fly aways. 
Pop, pop, pop!
Sprinkle with sea salt. 
Dive in with a spoon. They won’t last long! 

Every time we make them
we are surprised that something so simple is SO
I think I’ll go make some right now. 🙂

P.S. There is some hope
for this blogger girl to get her act together here. 🙂 I’ve been working on
some posts lately. Stay tuned. 

Something fun
Our nephew comes TONIGHT from Utah. He’ll be with us for a couple
of months. We’re super excited to host him. Danny’s parents will also join us
in about a week. We have one huge adventure planned.

    Dried seeds or fresh?

      We use dried. I need to try using fresh, though – likely they'll need to bake for some time in the oven.

    I've been blog hopping for the past half and hour and I was so glad that I stumbled across your blog. Ever since I first heard that pumpkin seeds were high in protein, I usually keep them handy for snack time. I've never heard of popping them before, but I love the idea. I'm going to try this tonight. Thanks and have a great weekend… 🙂

    You should get someone to post for you so we know if you are still okay. Hope you're just busy.

    Please post more. I don't want to take you off my bookmarks, since I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog up to this point, but it is disappointing to click on time and time again and find nothing new from you guys. Miss you!

    I found this blog a few weeks ago, started at the beginning and fell in love with your story, especially the "Love story" posts. I was looking forward to the engagement and then the wedding (sealing?). I never saw it. Did I miss something? I can't miss that. (first time poster) I hope all is well. I'm looking forward to the next posts – especially love story. I feel like I'm reading a novel but the last 2 chapters got ripped out Ha. Ive learned so much from you guys, thanks.
