Near the End

I find it difficult to really *get* that we have made it all the way to the end of November already. To me, it seems like it was JUST Summer. What happened??? The Christmas decorations are coming fast now, yards filled with lights, rooms with trees, twinkling. Ack! I AM NOT READY FOR THIS YET. Slow down today, and take wonder in the waning days of Fall. Fall into some nifty stuff!

The aforementioned Holidays are nigh upon us, so it is a great time to be looking at awe inspiring packaging and wrapping designs. How cool is this???!!! Look around the web for "packing tape design" and you will find a plethora of kewlness.

Your Daily Wicked-Good Food:

Roasted Onions with Maple Pepper

6 large onions
1/2 cup olive oil
sea salt to taste
Maple Pepper (you may use 3 Tblsp. maple syrup and 1/2 tsp. salt with 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper instead, but I highly recommend looking for this maple pepper. It is great!)

Cut onions in to quarters and toss with the olive oil and salt. Place in a backing pan and sprinkle maple pepper mixture on top. Bake at 375 degrees
