Pumpkins and seeds

The Ghost of the Happy Mac - Nitrozac's Mac-O'Lantern Tutorial

If you like The Ghost of the Happy Mac (awwww, what a cute little fella!) featured in Geek Culture's amazing Mac-O'Lanterns, you can now build one of your own. Here is Nitrozac's tutorial on how to make your own Mac-O'Lanterns, and the latest additions to his pumpkin family.

Extreme Pumpkin Carving Contest

Tom Nardone decided to make a pumpkin carving site Extreme Pumpkins that included shocking, funny and gross pumpkin designs. The concept is about adults having fun during the Halloween season.

If you want to be a part of Tom's Pumpkin Contest, why not email him photos of your own carved pumpkin. He has prizes that he is giving away to everyone who's photo they use. So send them in now.

Eating Pumpkin Seeds - Recipe

One of the great joys of pumpkin carving is eating the seeds. Tom likes eating his with Budweisers - here is his (American) recipe:

Step 1 - Turn on the oven to 350. I know you don't use it much so make sure it is really on. It should be getting warm.

Step 2 - Separate the seeds from the other stuff. Don't rinse them off, just get them separate.

Step 3 - Put them on a cookie sheet that you already sprayed with something like Pam. Shake some seasoning on them. I use something that says "Cajun" on the side. Sometimes I use salt. You can taste one at this point to see if you have enough seasoning. If you put on too much seasoning, take 1/2 the seeds. Rinse them. Mix them back in.

Step 4 - bake for 15 - 20 minutes.

Take them out of the oven and eat them.
