For your Thanksgiving / Fall grilling pleasure, I bring you Bobby Flay’s Orange Glazed Acorn Squash:

I substituted olive oil and agave for the butter and brown sugar, respectively. The glaze still caramelized nicely. Other Thanksgiving / Fall grilling possibilities include sweet potatoes and green beans.

Gentlemen (and Katie),

Today could be the most important day of the year:

Goldeneyecomes out on Wii. If you were part of any institution of higher education in the late 90s, you know what I mean.And, it’s like the CrossFit of video games—high intensity, good cardio, with substantial degrees of accuracy, agility and coordination required.There’s a good chance I’ll cancel all classes someday soon, break out the projector and screen from the running clinics, and host a massive tournament. Losers will “Fran” or FGB…something. I’m open to suggestions.

John

Jen M. and I would like to bring Dance Dance Revolution to video game day. If Mel can teach me to handstand, I can teach her DDR.

Excellent. I can’t wait. I have DDR’d before, but not very well.

Melody

4 player Goldeneye on the big screen *is* kind of awesome… so is DDR for that matter. hmm, i like where this is headed π

It’s the CrossFit “games” for us, Jenny.

John

Murph with a weighted vest? Doesn’t matter, I’m not losing.

who else has veterans day off?

BRING IT

PEW PEW PEW

I’ll happily unplug my wii and pack it in if network play is offered…

Speaking of Inov-8’s, Zappo’s literally just added (within the past couple of days), 195’s in red, so they have almost all of the sizes available (at least as of 10 minutes ago when I was looking at the site). If you’ve been trying to find them somewhere and are cool with red, check it out…

Facility Level with remote mines was my favorite. With those conditions, I’m unbeatable.

Hey Mel, I heard you occasionally regale BK and John with your singing prowess – which probably means I’ll have to bring my whole Rock Band kit sometime. Let’s hear you belt out a couple, ya?

Oh, dibs on the drums :D.
