Butternut squash, chickpea and tahini salad on the horizon

For our Meatless Monday main tonight, I'm going to try a warm butternut squash and chick pea salad with a tahini dressing. It's a Molly Wizenberg dish I found on Orangette  (her blog); as I've never been disappointed by anything of hers, I have the ingredients and wanted to try something new, I say yay! Later this week I'm going to make a spinach-phyllo pie which is always a delicious meal.

Do any of you have a frisky dog at home? If so, have you ever tossed him/her an empty plastic seltzer (or the like) bottle? Hilarious. Percy is running around like a rabid dervish, the bottle hanging from his mouth, tail straight out behind him in his wake.
