Pumpkin Seeds at Home

After Halloween we’re left with pumpkins of all sizes here and there. Here’s a simple pumpkin seed recipe. Everyone at home loves this pumpkin seeds recipe.


– Pumpkin seeds

– 1 tsp of butter

– 1 pinch of salt


– Heat up oven at 345 F.

– Take the pumpkin seeds out of a pumpkin. Wash them throughly and place on a round baking pan or big plate where you can spread them out well. Let them air dry for about 4-6 hours or overnight.

Heat the butter until it melts and add the salt. Mix well. Add the seeds to the butter mixture. Cover a baking pan with a baking sheet. Place the seeds on the pan making sure they are well spread appart.

– Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until seeds are brown.

– Enjoy! 🙂


Christmas in the Rockies. Local Diners on US 285.


Looking for local diners and comfort food meals as you travel this holiday season? Make a local diner part of your Colorado Rockies highway adventure. We went through US 285 Colorado highway and had lunch at Aspen Park’s DW’s 285 Diner.

We ordered the Tuna on Rye and their famous Club sandwich for authentic home-made flavors. The kids had SPAG & Meatballs and chicken biscuits & gravy plates.  Here are some pics.
