I love this picture beyond words. I hope you don't mind me admiring my own photography. It's from last year, and I just happened upon it and oh the love! No idea what we were making there. Julia is much less keen on cooking projects these days, but she's usually still game for some mixing and of course, batter removal from a spatula or spoon. I'm super happy about the weekend! Going to see some law school friends. AND GETTIN' THE HALLOWEEN DECOR out, oh yes-a-doodle cinnamon strudel.
Super COOL (and yummy) STUFF:
Did you all have a chance to peruse the JULIA'S BOOKBAG BOOKSTORE? And didya see our Awesomely Fab Halloween Booklist?
My favorite show comes back on this weekend!
These pumpkins in a box are so delightful, but what I want to know is, do people really do this? Buy pumpkins to be delivered? I guess someone out there must or why would they offer it? I am bemused.
Would you paint your pumpkin? I WOULD! Especially this color!
Might be an all treat day! Pumpkin Doughnut Mini Muffins.
Cool Book of the Week: 'Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen' by Carol Odell and Anna Pignataro. Don't judge me friends. I totally bought this while on vacation last month. It's a cookbook! With snippets of classic Kid Lit! One page excerpts from stories like Dr. Doolittle, Winnie-the-Pooh, The Jungle Book, Wind in the Willows, to name a few. Along with easy, kid friendly recipes that are inspired by the stories, such as 'Mowgli's Meusli' and 'Neverland Baked Bananas'. I want to try nearly every single recipe!
Have a lovely weekend! Speaking of weekends, last weekend was fun ~ Julia was at a sleepover, (one of only 2 places we would let her have one at this age) and Andrew and I had a date night! We went to a bookstore! That's what we like to do with our free time, for reals. We are so wild and cray-zay! I spent the better portion of an hour in the children's section and only came home with ONE thing! That's called WILLPOWER, my friends.
