  1. I wondered what you could do with the seeds. My kids tried to plant them last year after we tried it for the first time. We’ll have to buy some again this summer and try roasting and eating the seeds.

  2. Wow, this is like a whole new world of produce.

    You did great fighting the urge to get the fast food! That is using your want power. Minus the cheese I think you are good to go. In fact I would not be against using regular cheese because the “low fat” just means they added some chemical. The more natural the better.
