i helped separate the seeds from the pulp, and dad prepared his magical blend of pumpkin seed marinade… water, salt, tabasco sauce, soak overnight, bake in the oven. i think he should bag and sell them, they are SO GOOD.

i love how proud dad is of his cooking – really he’s a great chef

this pasta press is one of dad’s favorite toys, and it’s getting a lot of good use tonight

i think it’s just flour, egg, and water, pressed and repressed and repressed and filled with pumpkin and made into lovely pockets of pumpkin goodness
