Nuts and not nuts

Sweet & Spicy roasted cashews - a work in progress. I bought a big bag of unsalted cashews from Wild Oats for 90 cents recently and decided to play around. These are roasted with agave nectar, sea salt and cayenne pepper. The pasta dish includes whole wheat penne, oil & garlic as always, asparagus and tomatoes. I don't like to buy asparagus out of its local season, but I could't resist at 1.99/lb at Wild Oats, on the same nut deal day. Sorry, no real recipes to update with today, but I will share that my cat Huxley apparently enjoys rice milk. I very rarely have it in the house, and I had some with my strawberry/flax granola this morning and he pretty much dove in..

Thank you! I'm in a big nut phase right now.

One of our cats is a total soy milk fiend. And I bet she'd dive into my cereal if it had rice milk on it too.

My daughter has been trying to lure the neighbor cats with soy milk, but all she got was frozen soy milk. ;-)

Cashews for 90 cents?!? I would've bought every bag they had!

Ooh those nuts looks great - what else are you trying??

Well, I keep my kitties away from soy milk, so now rice milk is on the list too. They never went soy milk really, though.

purl princess- thanks for commenting!
The other new food in my life isn't quite so exciting, it's a reintroduction and repurchase of goddess dressing for my salads (well trader joe's version). However, the morning may call for pancakes, tempeh bacon and homefries. We'll see..

I am going to buy some asparagus tonight! Thanks for the "egging" on.

Great pics!
