I meant to have this up yesterday in case you had a little free time and felt like doing some baking today. Opps. I haven't got a good excuse for you. I simply distract myself and don't get things done. Lack of focus I think they call it. Or focusing on too many things, which I think is my affliction. Back to the recipe. Focus Maggie, focus.

I really like. No let me start again. I LOVE butternut squash. After all those years of not eating squash unless it was baked with butter and brown sugar and now I can't get enough. Maybe it is the color. Orange is one of my favorite colors after all! I am game to try just about any recipe with butternut squash in it and when I came across this on Epicurious I had to give it a shot. Squash, spinach, goat cheese and onions on a pizza - how could I go wrong? Though a little bit time consuming I think this will make several repeat appearances!

I've always wanted to make Pad Thai at home. I make the curries after all so why not give Pad Thai a try? There was a great article on Thai food in last month's Bon Appetit. So I decided to go for it. Unfortunately I couldn't find all of the ingredients but I did the best with what I could find and I'll just have to keep on the lookout for the rest next time I am near an Asian grocery. The recipe did call for shrimp which is never hard to find, I just don't care for it so I left it out. I also opted to leave out the ground dried chiles and stirred in my favorite ground chile and garlic paste as I was eating it. To see the real recipe head over to Bon Appetit.
