Back on the Blog Wagon...

Lately I've been reading lots of blogs, but I've really missed posting.  What better time to start than today?

At the end of October, I headed to the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival with my girlfriend.  We had a blast.  It was especially nice because this year, they sold tickets to attend the first hour.  That means there was some time to wander around and meet with the vendors before it got too crowded. We managed a decent haul of freebies and coupons and purchased a few items to try out as well.

Uncle Eddies's Vegan Cookies were there this year.  I'm a huge fan of their chocolate chip peanut butter flavor, so it was nice to see them.  Vegan Treats Bakery was also there with an amazing spread.  They had cannolis which I couldn't wait to try.  Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan.  I'll definitely stick to their more interesting pastries like the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bomb, in the future.

We picked up a couple of items at the Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe table as well.  They actually had imitation pork rinds. Seriously! Who thinks of these things?

I don't recall ever wanting to eat pork rinds, but I couldn't resist buying these.  Even though I normally wouldn't try something, I'm often feel compelled to try a vegan version if there is one.  Why, we'll never know.

The verdict...  Not bad.  They were just crunchy squares of thin, salty dough.

That's all for now.  I'll be posting soon about making watermelon radish pickles because there was a pound of very pretty watermelon radishes in my organic veggie box last week.
