As Halloween approaches, scary faces carved in massive pumpkins stare out from doorsteps and front windows. What happens to all those seeds? Instead of throwing them into the garbage or compost, roast them for a snack. Clean off the stringy pulp, place on a cookie sheet, lightly coat with cooking spray or a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and oven roast at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the seeds start to brown. (Frugal cook's tip: Boiling the seeds first for about 10 minutes makes the shells softer.)
