Dorm Life: “Toasted” Pumpkin Seeds

Dorm Life: “Toasted” Pumpkin Seeds

I found myself dropping quarters into the man’s hand.  What was I thinking?  Everyone knows that quarters are a precious commodity to college students.    Well, I may have to combine some laundry loads, but at least the mini pumpkins would look festive on my counter.

They hadn’t been sitting there more than two hours before I grasped my trusty table knife and made the stab.  Surely I was out of my mind.  You use seeds from big pumpkins when you want to toast them, and you do so in an oven.  This was going to end badly.
