Sea Scenes in Seeds

A friend gave me a lovely heirloom squash, and I decided to roast the handsome pinstriped seeds. As a first step, I boiled them in salted water. I stirred them, daydreaming. Suddenly, the seeds transformed into a gorgeous school of tropical fish that darted energetically after my wooden spoon. Apparently, the slimy squash stuff that still clung to my little fishes facilitated their "swimming". I cooked them longer than necessary, lingering over the magical scene.

My favorite squash is pumpkin, they are delicious in pancakes, waffles, cheesecake, the possibilities are almost endless. And then there is the Punkin Chunkin Championship next week, could anything be more fun? I think not!

Love, hugs and kisses,

So good to hear from you, my dear!

Do you put the seeds or the fruit in the pancakes, waffles, and cheesecake?

Would you please cover the Punkin Chunkin Championship as a guest contributor to my blog? Just take some pictures and conduct a few interviews. The assignment is sure to bring you fame and fortune!

Big love to you and all the mushy, smoochy stuff,
