It’s time for an installment of Thursday Things and a few items that have caught my eye this week:

1. Halloween candy season has definitely caught my eye.  All the limited editions, special flavor offerings, and once-a-year candy combos the candy manufacturers come out with.  I never met a drop of HFCS or highly processed chocolate that I didn’t love.

These KitKats I spotted at Target with white chocolate?  Yes please.

White, Milk, and halloween colored chocolate kit Kats

I’m a big fan of white chocolate

2. This big, sharp, lightweight knife.  The bigger the better, baby.

Chef's KnifeI’d gladly take this one.  It’s on sale for $400.  I better hurry.

3. These measuring cups from Anthro

Floral patterned measuring cups from AnthropologieI pinned them on my Dishes Board

4. Or this milk bottle measuring cup set

It somehow reminds me of the Russian nesting dolls I used to play with as a child.  Stacking, nesting, and cute little pieces that fit together.

5. It was a full moon yesterday.  So technically a Wednesday thing, but who’s counting.

Did you notice any full moon effects?

Moody, edgy, intense, passionate, meltdowns, insomnia, things breaking or going haywire, mechanical or electrical problems?

Blame it on the moon.

6. Salsa Verde.  Not as much garlic and onions in it compared to red salsa which I prefer.  The sodium content is still a big high for my liking, but I’ve been dealing with it.

Can of Trader Joe's Salsa Verde And making some fun things with it in my hopes of creating more new recipes.

7. A new Flexipat from Kelly

Black Flexipat

It’s like a Silpat but even more indestructible and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The Flexipat sounds like the Vita-Mix of baking sheet liners.  I can’t wait to break it in.

Maybe with a batch of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

 8. The winner of the Not Nuts! Giveaway is

Bev Weidner

“Um, if I just open my mouth, will you pour that entire bag down my throat? Please and thank you.”

Congrats, Bev!  Two bags of seeds coming your way.

9. We’re having a heat wave in San Diego!  95F and sunny the past two days.  Not complaining, at all, but I am back to craving these rather than these.
