These pumpkin seeds are a delightful teaser for my next post, which will be a recipe for curried butternut squash soup. They deserve a separate posting because not only are they delicious and easy to make, but my husband is convinced we should market and package them and promptly retire early. You can only hope, right?
This is just a brief posting, but be on the look for curried butternut squash soup coming soon! Try these out in the meantime 🙂
