    I found a tip online that I used – its better to simmer them slightly in water first – it removes all of the extra floaty bits, and makes them more crisp in the oven, and easier to get to the meat.

    I actually don’t do it that way on purpose. I eat the shell, because they’re delicious. They get super crisp, baked this way. 🙂

    I made your chili for the second time yesterday for Halloween. My husband claims it is the best recipe of our 17 years together-thanks Vickie!

    I need to find out if I can bake my Cinderella pumpkin seeds. I purposefully bought a few different varieties of pumpkins this year so I can try and re-seed them in my garden next year but I wonder if I can eat the seeds on all my Franken-gourds or if I can only eat certain varieties. Time for me to do some research!
