ex machina

the eric update - day 485: odin's epicurean adventures! roasted pumpkin seeds.

while he can't eat them yet because i think they're probably the very definition of "choking hazard", but that doesn't mean that odin can't enjoy the smell of fresh pumpkin seeds roasting in the oven.

we're traditionalists when it comes to roasting pumpkin seeds and generally frown upon adding any fancy schmancy ingredients that distract from the simple roasted pumpkin flavors :-)

- 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds ( about what you get from a mediumish sized pumpkin )
- 2 tsp. melted butter
- salt to taste

Preheat oven to 300° F. Mix pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the melted butter and salt and spread in a single layer on abaking sheet.

Bake for about 42 minutes - until golden brown - stirring occasionally.

Those look great! I'm jealous! We had good intentions to roast the seeds from our Elmo jack-o-lantern, but with my morning (all day) sickness, I couldn't bring myself near enough the pumpkin guts to pick out the seeds!

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
