Re: Basically TGoodnessIFriday!

I just bought a big pack of those tealight candles after the last storm-induced power outage. They are awesome! You used to only be able to get them in October at the dollar store (to put inside jackolanterns) but now they are everywhere and not all that expensive in the US.

I am planning to try to use both pans with my pumpkin bread recipe. I have no idea if they will actually come out of the pan whole, but I bet a regular spice or gingerbread cake (or any regular cake for that matter) would. I think it would be a really cute teacher gift, and it also is an easy way to do gingerbread houses if you aren't savvy enough to make traditional ones.

Re: Basically TGoodnessIFriday!

Ok, I am going to attempt spaghetti squash for the first time. It actually has instructions on it how to cook it in the microwave right on the squash itself. So should I just do that, or is it better in the oven?

I do it in the microwave. I guess it depends on how you will serve it, I made a bake out of it after microwaving it (spaghetti sauce/meat and cheese) so it would have finished off the cooking.

Re: Basically TGoodnessIFriday!

I am going to pass it off as spaghetti. If it's a fail it doesn't take that long to boil actual pasta, LOL. If this works and they like it, I may use it instead of spaghetti regularly. I have a hard time getting them to eat any veggies other than broc, cauli, and carrots unless it is disguised.

I like the flavor roasting gives it but if you are passing it off you may want to microwave it

Re: Basically TGoodnessIFriday!

Well, I couldn't really pass it off because everyone kept bugging me while I was fixing it, so they knew what it was. They very valiantly tried it, did not really care for it, but begrudgingly ate about 1/3 a cup with their meatballs when bribed with biscuits I made with the last of the Bisquick I had. They didn't even notice the bisquick biscuits taste different than real biscuits, they were so relieved to get to that point. Ginger and Ian however said they would be willing to eat it plain as a side dish in the future. :shrug:

I've never had it before, so I am not totally sure I made it right. But it pretty much had a squash texture and taste to me, not a pasta texture at all. Zucchini marinara is one of my faves, so I really liked it. I'd totally get it again, and eat most of it myself.

Re: Basically TGoodnessIFriday!

Gah. I can't believe I am actually considering doing a Black Friday thing. Evidently Meijers (which is a like midwestern Walmart) is doing iPads at the same prices everyone else is, but giving a $100 gift card for their store with purchase. IME they have not been all that busy on BF so it could in theory be doable. However, IDK that they have ever done a BF that even remotely compared to Walmart/BestBuy/etc before so it may actually be crazy. And also we never even considered buying an iPad before, and don't really need one, so it would really be an impulse purchase.

Gah. I am just really stumped what to get the kids. They haven't really asked for anything.
