Well what the heck is this? It's a dried up dead sunflower. Okay, um, thanks. So what should I be doing with this?
Look closer and you see the thousands of sunflower seeds. What?! Sunflowers actually are where sunflower seeds came from?! Well DUH Elizabeth. So I had a life lesson learned there cause I am not always the brightest bulb in the package and never actually thought about the fact that sunflower seeds actually DO come from a sunflower. So we gutted this bad boy...
Threw 'em on a cookie sheet and baked at 275 for about 7 mins...and the the final result is pretty bland sunflower seeds.
I am sure there are some ways I could have seasoned them and snazzied them up...but let me just tell you, it takes FOREVER to take all the seeds out and so, let's just say it is so NOT worth it! Sunflower seeds cost a piddlin amount, so yeah, it was a fun experience, but one we are not going to do again.
On a more exciting note...I am going to lunch tomorrow with my two favorite nurses of Keatons!! YAY!! And of course, Keaton is coming too and is super excited, I can totally tell! ;)
