Baked Pumpkin Seeds

You’ve got a pumpkin that you want to carve. Don’t throw away those seeds from the inside.

Remove the seeds from the stringy part (pulp). Do not rinse. It’s okay to leave a little of the pulp on the seeds.

Mix the seeds with 1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine, then spread on a cookie sheet.

Sprinkle with a small amount of salt.

Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The seeds should be lightly browned.

Let cool. Store in airtight containers or plastic bags.

Fancy Coleslaw

5 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 cups almonds, toasted
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 1/2 tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper

Combine all dressing ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Combine cabbage, almonds, cranberries, celery, green onions, and green pepper in a large bowl.

Pour dressing over slaw just before serving. Stir well.

Notes: You can purchase already shredded cabbage in bags in the produce section at the grocery store. This really cuts down on time and effort, without adding too much extra expense (which is worth it).
