Today we drove out to Woodland to pick up a side of pork from my cousin. Several weeks back we got a side of beef and split it with friends, leaving about 1/2 side for ourselves. The meat is delicious. So good in fact, that when I went out and had steak at a nice restaurant, the meat tasted bland. There's a lot to say for cattle raised in healthy conditions with healthy food. My husband and daughter decided we're having some for breakfast. I'm looking forward to waking up to the smell of bacon sizzling in the kitchen tomorrow. Yum!
Tomorrow we're going to carve up our little collection of pumpkins. My daughter picked out some pumpkin decorations that are like Mr. Potato Head parts. You just poke a hole in the pumpkin and slide the decorations in. I'm mostly looking forward to roasting the seeds for an afternoon snack. My mom is coming over at some point, and we plan on going to the Trunk or Treat event across the street at the school. After that we'll curl up on the couch for our yearly tradition - Ghost Hunters Live.
Happy Halloween to all of you out there, and stay safe!
For your viewing pleasure, some pictures from before our little pumpkin joined our lives:
Somehow we managed to get this beast into our mid-sized sedan.
Pardon the random mess. Just for reference, that honker is
about the size of my 6'2" husband if he curled up in a ball.
That's our little guy, Hawkeye with his partner in crime peeking out the window.
Check out how big it is compared to the dog! He's about 18 lbs.
Still no clue how much the pumpkin weighed, but it took two of us and a dolly to move it!
