Those seeds are soft and huge! That is a big soup spoon that I'm scooping them with.
What I learned:
1. Cut it in half, not just the top like a pumpkin. Why? Because the seeds are in every nook and cranny - it was impossible to get them all out through the top.
2. Plan a flavorful recipe. Although it is still yummy yummy squash, it is kind of bland and watery, like pumpkin.
3. Have plenty of people to eat it. I've been having some every day all week and there's still about half left!
