Autumn Spiced Roasted Cashews & Pumpkin Seeds



I don't know about you, but I've never been a fan of things that are "pumpkin-spiced."  Where's the pumpkin, dude?  [cue awkward chirping of awkward crickets]

Even though I know that in most cases there will be no pumpkin ingredients at all and I know in my head that "pumpkin spice" simply refers to a combination of aromatic spices typically used in making pumpkin pie, I still have that association of pumpkin flavor, texture, and color when a food or drink is  is advertised as pumpkin spiced.  Knowing all of these things, I *still* manage to find a way to expect it.  And as someone who loves pumpkin, it can sometimes be difficult to hide my underwhelmed response/shock.

Yup, still no pumpkin.
