A hunk of squash, red pepper and cloves

a pair of scissors, a metal skewer and one toothpick (nearly hidden under the red pepper)

So what do you think I am going to do with this odd assortment of items?

Skewer up the squash and pepper, flavored with the cloves,and grill it for a little snack and then pick my teeth clean with the toothpick?

No, that would be way to predictable.

Got any other ideas?

Give up?

OK, I will show you...............

I bet you never would have guessed this, would you?
Isn't he just adorable?
He would be perfect for a Thanksgiving table if you had planned to serve that squash. If not it would be a waste to buy so many squash just for the turkey heads.

I saw this idea someplace a while ago. I can't remember where, but I kept it tucked away in my brain. Yesterday at work the cook was cutting up squash & red pepper and I asked her if I could have these little pieces.

I disclosed my little baggie of company property to The Boss before I left, who raised an eyebrow in question.

"Times are tough at Zoey's house," I said. "You know what you pay me. This is all we can afford for dinner."

He just gives an incredulous shake of his head and walks back into his office. LOL. I love to work in such a fun place.


  1. I love the center piece. Zoey you are so clever.

  2. Zoey, you are so darned creative! Your ideas are always fun and you're far enough away so I can use them on my table and take credit for being clever! "-)))) Ya gotta love this blogging thing!!!

  3. Thanks, Mom. You weren't supposed to see this as it might be on the table for Thanksgiving Day. ;)

    Giddy, Go for it! That is exactly what blogging is about -- sharing our ideas, talents, etc. Don't forget to post a pic if you do it. I would just love to see your interpretation.

  4. Zoey thats about the cutest idea I have seen in a while,and the best part is you don't have to store it you can just throw it away after you use it.

  5. Very creative idea. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it. What a creative setting.
