While Tom was expressing himself with knives, I was cleaning and roasting pumpkin seeds. I expected way more—I guess it’s been a while. I just tossed these in next-to-no olive oil and Penzeys spicy seasoned salt. Round about 25 minutes at 350º is all it took. So good.
We don’t have kids or live near kids, but I know some of you do. Think about how much fun trick-or-treating was on Halloween (and the careful sorting and counting once you got home…or was that just me?). Shouldn’t vegan kids be able to have some fun? No Trick Treats is one of those fantastic ideas you can’t believe somebody actually went through with. It’s a map of where you can find safe treats for a whole slew of dietary restrictions. Whether it’s vegan, gluten-free, kosher, nut-free, organic, nonfood, raw, sugar-free, or fruits-n-veg, if you’re giving away these special treats, get yourself on the map!
