So we're working on the whole "registry" thing even though I'm really not thrilled with the idea of people getting us gifts just because we decided to make the whole thing legal and we want them to come and watch...

I came across an absolute gem, though: http://www.bottlenotes.com A wine registry! Amazing! Really I think once we set something up (as we inevitably will given that we love wine) it should be more of a wine wish list for all future birthdays/occasions/etc...kind of like an amazon.com wish list (before Amazon started selling things like housewares and set up registries of their own).

Apparently Hestia got bored and decided to have a way with me today. I actually accomplished doing dishes, going grocery shopping, and now I'm just finishing up dinner (with a small handful of modifications...acorn squash just sounded amazing to me today when I went shopping), and will be enjoying a nice glass of light red wine with it (pinot noir...red for the richness of the squash, but light enough for the fruit and sweet). Too bad Dan's sick and asleep and can't enjoy it with me.

Wow...really...I never cook. Apparently twelve hour days cooking at work make me want to cook on my days off? Strange.

Oh...modifications...like no mushrooms, no apricot because I didn't want to buy something I wouldn't eat later, added more cider than it said to and added brown sugar when I combined everything, plus added a bit to the tops before baking. It actually could probably have used a splash of cider in each half (or drizzled over the toppings before baking) and a layer of brown sugar inside the half before filling. It's not bad, but I think I prefer regular old acorn squash with lots of butter and salt and pepper.
