Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,

Finally feeling like fall – and that means a pumpkin recipe! See below.

-On Wednesday is my next meeting with constituents. This one is at Mamie Warren Senior Center and is an Ice Cream Social. Come join us at noon.

-Thursday evening is the Friends of the NRA Dinner at the Modern Maturity Center. Mmmmm yummy beef and dumplings.

-Saturday is a Citizens Hose of Smyrna Gun Bash. Go to for more details. Saturday evening I will be attending the 3 Palms Zoo annual Boo at the Zoo event. Sauly will be with me in costume!

-Below is my meeting with constituents schedule for the rest of the year. Come to one or all for some good conversation about what is going on in Delaware politics.



Wednesday, October 18th Noon to 1 p.m. Mamie Warren Senior Center. Smyrna, DE

Saturday, October 21st 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. 3 Palms Zoo – Clayton, DE. Boo at the Zoo!  with a rain date of Saturday, October 28th



Friday, November 3rd 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  Harvest Ridge Winery. Marydel, DE

Monday, November 20th 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Willey Farms. Townsend, DE

October means a lot of things to a lot of people. A big one is pumpkin flavored everything. I find pumpkin repulsive. But, I love pumpkin seeds. After carving one with Saul today I cooked up the seeds in a couple different ways. This was my favorite:

-1/2 pumpkin worth of seeds with the orange goo mostly removed

-Cooking spray

-Smoked salt

-Dark brown sugar

-Peri Peri chili (aka Birds Eye chili. Aka African Yellow Peppers) powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a non-stick pan with the cooking spray. Toss the seeds with some salt, brown sugar, and chili powder. Spread evenly on pan. Cook for 15 minutes. Stir and re-spread. Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the seeds are golden brown and the sugar has caramelized.


— Thanks.
