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.
