Is it Boxing Day already? 'Cause I'm ready!

Yum Yum Squash

Oven roasted Delicata squash (quartered, slathered with butter, brown sugar & salt, roasted @ 400F for 40 minutes), gnocchi, roasted red onion, garlic salt, more butter & olive oil, and some melted mozzarella.

"Tastes better than I thought!", says The Husband. Nice.

God, I love Black Friday sales...

But only the ones at CVS and Walgreens drugstores! No need to get up early, since they had plenty in stock... all pretty much free after rewards and coupons!

I just saw this in a JCPenney flyer yesterday. Apparently you can buy stuff from the MoMA Design Store @ JCPenney now. This owl kitchen timer is SO freakin' adorable!

Just leave a comment below, telling me which of the 4 different scents you're most interested in trying (or email me your comment - I need to be able to contact the winner, so don't just leave an anonymous comment!)

This gift pack is just wonderful. The dish soaps work great (a little goes a long way) and smell yummy (the lemongrass/ginger is my favorite - it even gets me to do the dishes, although I usually leave this to hubby!), the little towels and scrubbies are super handy, and the Le Creuset baking dish I received is apple green and has already been used for making baked chicken and potatoes.

By the way, Seventh Generation is also hosting the "Nature Makes Perfect Scents" sweepstakes right now at seventhgeneration.com/scents - you can enter to win a trip to France, Italy, or Vermont (the areas where the essential oils for their scented natural dish liquids come from)!

Disclosure: The Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid prize pack, product and information have been provided by Seventh Generation through MyBlogSpark)

There's something about Ramen noodle soup....

... that's just insanely satisfying. Especially if you only use half the seasoning (c'mon, only half the MSG isn't gonna kill ya, right?), add some healthy stuff like cabbage strips, carrots, and peas before adding the noodles, and finish with some toasted sesame oil. Yum!

Also, today is 11/11/11. I feel like I should be standing in front of an Elvis impersonator at a Las Vegas chapel...
