1. Nothing screams "ironing is a woman's job" like this pink iron by Rowenta. Even so, I still really like it. With 100% of the profits being donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation on an iron that will work great (I love Rowenta irons) and looks pretty, what's not to like? But if it means my husband won't touch the thing--it's totally not worth it. I guess we could have His and Her irons? Hmmmm.
2. I just had the opportunity to try a Zucchini "Apple" Pie. What's that you ask? It's a pie that tastes like apple but is made entirely of zucchini. So trippy. If someone hadn't told me it wasn't made of apples, I would have never guessed. Seriously. It' the perfect recipe for a garden overrun with zucchinis and it actually works best with the ones that are a little too big and "seedy" to make anything else.
3. If you happen to crochet or knit and have all this time you don't know what to do with (or you want a little project to keep you awake during General Conference this weekend) check out The Love Scarf Project. It's a new service project I am working on with my ward and the community. If you don't live in my area (LA), you could always consider making scarves or hats to donate to a local hospital or shelter during the holidays.
4. To celebrate the third annual Worlwide Day of Play this Saturday, Nickelodeon is going off the air for three hours to encourage to get out and play. So, go outside and play with your kids!...or do what most other people will do--change the channel to Noggin ;).
Wow---ironing, cooking, needle crafts and parenting skills all in one post. I warned you it would be domestic!
