Ah, what a beautiful few days we’ve had here. Sunny and warm, though certainly fall!
(FYI that pumpkin is massive! can’t wait to carve it and roast up the seeds!)
This week has been pretty mellow, a little yard work but otherwise nothing crazy. Dexter has been getting used to his harness and enjoying going on a few walks around the house, and that’s been fun watching him sniff out the new area… Though walking through the woods with him is slightly awkward, too many branches that he walks under and gets his leash all tangled up.
I prefer him on the deck.
So does Ewok.
Costco was pretty busy today, and I took full advantage of all the samples! Usually I don’t eat all of the samples but today I just grabbed one of everything! (Though I think the guacamole was my favorite.)
There were lots of great sales happening, so I had to try hard not to go too crazy. Especially when the Starbucks Cafe Verona coffee is on sale, that’s a big stock up item.
I’m sorry I didn’t get any pictures of our Thanksgiving dinner, but I have some from the other night.
Baked Potatoes, roasted Squash with maple syrup (YUM!) Chicken and a delicious salad. Also provided leftovers for tonight which is never a bad thing. I love that kind of meal, very much a fall/winter type of dinner, probably my favorite kind of cooking. Rich, warm flavors that you can toss in the oven at the same time on one pan and come back to it 45-50 minutes later and it’s done. Gotta love it! (and it smells so good!)
Speaking of good smelling I grabbed a bag of grapefruits at Costco today, and whenever I buy a bag of them I love to get my face as close as I can to them and take a big sniff… Oh they smell so good! I hope I’m not the only one who does that??? Anyone else? Please tell me I’m not alone in this….
Anyhow, weirdo or not; I love grapefruits and the tasty juice within them. So I got home ripped the bag open and juiced 4 of them (half the bag)
I wound up with just shy of a litre of grapefruit juice, which isn’t too bad! (also probably won’t last long) I know I could probably buy grapefruit juice, but I love fresh juice!
Ok, I think I’ll leave it there folks. Tomorrow is inching closer and closer and the soundtrack to this week’s writing is running out.
Therefore, time to depart.
Good night all. See you next week.
