Go Pumpkin Picking

Wednesday, October 30, 2013


I was really excited for this 25 in 25 goal. I wanted to leave the city, drive to a pumpkin patch with hayrides and a corn maze, drink some apple cider, really make a day out of it. But because I was gone every weekend in October, I never got around to going. So last Saturday, determined to cross this off the list despite having a few gin and tonics too many the night before, Brian and I went to the neighborhood farmer's market (the closest to a patch we could get!) to pick out two pumpkins. But when we got there, we saw this:


And then we saw this:


So we split the best grilled cheese (with apples, bacon and onions inside!):


And went to Trader Joe's to pick pumpkins:


On Sunday our sweet friends Kimmie and Tony had us over to drink cocktails, eat ziti and carve our pumpkins. We had a great time, and I'm pretty impressed with our finished products. 
 
 

Happy Halloween! Hope your pumpkin picking was more successful than ours. Now, let's stuff our faces with candy, shall we?
