in the oven right now...

acorn squash all together.

Soon to go in the sauna to join it: side of salmon.

Hopefully I'll have photos and reports and recipes to follow.


It turned out okay. Mine had too much garlic but I loved the idea of it so I'll probably try it again. You can get the recipe in progress here

And the salmon, which I didn't get a picture of turned out also okay, but I tried a new high temperature way to bake and I have to say I think the tented in tinfoil and baked on a lower temp is way better. We like it smothered in italian dressing, put in a loose tinfoil dress, and baked at 375 for, oh I don't know, 20 minutes maybe. And by "we" I mean "I." obviously. I cooked a chicken breast with mushrooms and garlic for everyone else.

And as always the couscous was amazing. We just buy the Far East brand of garlic and olive oil couscous. Soooo good and it goes with everything. You must try it.

And let me just assure all of you that there are NO other buns in the oven at the moment and as much as I'd love to keep it to myself for a while when there is another bun, I am HORRIBLE horrible at keeping exciting secrets. I'll last about 5 minutes before I announce it to the world.

Oh man, I can't WAIT to see how that turns out! Mom has been trying Pumpkin Altogether for years to no avail! I hope it was great and if so, post the recipe you used!

those are pretty pictures. i wish i had the tummy for that stuff. the chicken and mushrooms sounded great--the salmon too. I'll have to try couscous still. AND, I'm glad you can't keep those exciting secrets, "secret" either. It's just too hard!
