Pumpkin Ziti and Giveaway Winner

Good morning! The winner of my Peas and Thank You giveaway is....capiscumthings! Congratulations, please email me your mailing info and I'll get that right out to you!

And a big thank you to all who commented with your favorite vegan cookbook recipes! The Veganomicon Pumpkin Baked Ziti got quite a few mentions, so I thought I better try it out.

As is usually necessary with a more labor-intensive recipe, I did some of my prep in the morning while the kids were occupied with sleep and breakfast -- pureeing the cashew ricotta, toasting the homemade breadcrumbs, and grinding nuts. In the evening it still took me about an hour to put together, including baking time. But it makes a big casserole dish full, so now I don't have to cook tonight. It all evens out, right?  It's such a perfect autumn meal, with the flavors of sage, walnut and of course pumpkin.

I also made these Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips that Carrie on Vegan posted. What a yummy snack.

Have a lovely day, see you tomorrow.
