napoleon.pumpkin.&.seeds

Every few years I take some time to carve a fun pumpkin. 2 years ago it was the pope, and in years past Bill Cosby as well as Hillary Clinton have been featured. It’s a bit of work, and a lot of fun, and of course my parents are super impressed with all the money they spent on “art school” for me to carve pumpkins. I won a $20 gift card to a Thai restaurant in a contest once (totally helps with those student loans!)

I was torn between RuPaul, the Last Supper and Napoleon…but we obviously know who won.

These kinds of pumpkins always look pretty terrible when not lit in the almost complete dark (as you can see), but the seeds are amazing when roasted no matter what’s happening with daylight savings time.

  • Rinse and separate seeds from guts
  • Spread on a lightly oiled baking sheet, sprinkle with salt & pepper, drizzle a bit more oil
  • Bake @ 350* for 30-45 minutes, pushing them around every 10 minutes or so to toast equally
  • Stuff face
