On the way home from school yesterday afternoon we stopped in a Hyvee. They had a nice display of pumpkins. $3.99
I told Katie to pick one out and went inside to get some Chinese food. (If you are from the Madison area and know of a better place to get Chinese food, please let me know. I have lived in this area for over ten years and I haven't found a great Chinese food restaurant yet.)
It took a while before I spotted Katie and her pumpkin. She put it in a cart because it was so big. Yes, she picked out the biggest one she could find. She was very cute pushing her pumpkin and smiling :o)
When we got home we took pictures.
Stats: Aperture 1.8, ISO 250, lens 50mm 1.4
At check out the young man asked about our pumpkin. He said, "How do you cook your seeds?"
I was surprised that this 19 year old asked me that...I was surprised he knew about cooking pumpkin seeds and that he asked me like everyone did this. It is so sweet.
I said, my mom always made them but mine never turned out as well.
He said he used butter and salt and Worcestershire and he cooked them until they were very crisp. Almost burnt. But not.
Our pumpkin seed conversation made my day. I liked that boy.
So many times I feel like the invisible old lady.
Not today. I felt like a person who would cook her pumpkin seeds.
It felt good.
Do you cook your pumpkin seeds? How do you make them?
