Pumpkins beware...

5th graders Lindsay, Elyse & Shawna are charmed by these pumpkins.

The children have scooped out the seeds for toasting and chopped the pumpkin into large pieces for roasting.

The toasted "pepitas", which is Spanish for pumpkin seeds. They are a healthy, nutritious snack. Even the children who never tasted them before loved them. I love to garnish a creamy pumpkin soup with a few crunchy pepitas.
Parents, try this one at home!
