Turn a pumpkin's insides into a sweet-and-spicy snack.

When carving your jack-o-lantern, don't throw out the seeds. Get the kids to rinse off all the orange goo, sprinkle them with any seasoning you want--you can make them sweet or savory--and roast them for a crunchy, high-fiber snack. Here's a spice combination we like.
