...who has an obscene quantity of pumpkin seeds!?

This girl  =D
3/5 of my pumpkin seed cache!
*pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc, vitamin E, fiber and a whole bunch or other healthy stuff  
good lunch box, or after school/work snack!

spoils of my toils...  nom nom nom!!!
I spent 2 1/2 hours scooping pumpkins (1 1/2 hours longer than I expected I would last - hello my good friend heating pad) should have brought 2 giant pots!   haha!!   But, seriously SO MUCH FUN!   =D

I am going to roast em'  -  a am thinking lightly salted; garlic oil and salt; maybe sweet and spicy - red pepper and brown sugar..    and perhaps this recipe for Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds  nom nom nom!!!

any other suggestions???

*update 10/27  I took some offline advice and made a batch about 1 1/2 cup cleaned seeds - soaked them in water to cover (about 1 cup) with a generous splash of lemon juice (2 tablespoons)  and salt (1/2 teaspoon) for about 1 hour... drained in a colander...  added about 3 twists of fresh ground pepper...  dumped em on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked for about 25-30 minutes at 300 degrees...  I did not preheat!
lemon, salt & pepper seeds  - nom nom nom!!!
