Monday Roundup: The Ecletic Edition

IMGP6679At first, I thought of doing an autumnal theme for today’s roundup since we’re now in the thick of fall. And of course, when I think of fall, I think of the kiddies going back to school. And when I think of school, I think of learning stuff. So, in a weird stream-of-consciousness way, I arrived at today’s theme: “Stuff you may not have known before, and oh, some posts about autumn too.”

I mean, did you know that the UK has a National Apple Day? Or that Medieval Times will do a vegan option? Or what a kurtos is? Or that the morel is the Minnesota state mushroom?

Did you know that Sweet & Sara has two new flavors of vegan marshmallows? Or that cauliflower comes in an an orange variety? Or that it’s possible to make vegan baked goods from some store-bought mixes? Or that Vegan Essentials sells an accidentally vegan flavor of Doritos?

Do you know what vegan-friendly candies you can give away this Halloween? Or how to grow your own sprouts? Or how to tell the edible sweet variety of chestnut from the toxic horse chestnut? Also, special bonus knowledge for Americans: Yorkshire pudding, not a dessert; and Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on a different day.

I almost forgot the autumnal bits: Tahinitoo and the Gluttonous Vegan (from whence was swiped the cute pumpkin picture above) have both been doing awesome pretty stuff with pumpkins. Mmm, pumpkins…
