We're not really doing anything. We bought some candy to give out to trick-or-treaters and maybe this year we'll actually get some.
We'll probably just end up eating the giant bag of chocolate like every other year though.
Last weekend, we celebrated at a Speakeasy Party (in a real speakeasy) - I'll share the picture sometime. Not to brag, but our costumes were pretty amazing. The best actually.
At the 20s party, I had so much fun that I think I'll stick to the mocktails for a little while.

The thing Austin just couldn't seem to get over was why we needed a gravy boat.
'Can't we just eat gravy out of the pan like we always do?'
Well, yes, we can. But now we don't have to! And I promise when we have people over or maybe when we host our first Thanksgiving, he'll be excited that we can do it properly.

I fall somewhere in between. I'll definitely try out new stuff from time to time, but if something was good, I'm gonna go back for more too.
I've never understood how people can eat the exact same things over and over again. From time to time, I'll get in a rut where I find myself eating the same thing for breakfast for a few weeks straight, but that's about where it stops.
If I never experimented with my food, I would have never had crispy sage. If I'd never had crispy sage, I don't know if my life ever would have felt complete.
It's that good.
Especially when you pair it with some smokey provolone cheese and sweet butternut squash melted between two slices of golden toasted french bread.

When I reread that, I realize that I sound like the oldest person ever, but I don't really care.
In fact, I kind of like being older. I like that I've moved beyond my shots-with-chasers days and now I can have a proper drink. In a real glass - made of glass. Growing up is not all bad, I promise.

It's true. You make these 6 recipes with that big, orange gourd and you'll be totally set.
Although I wouldn't blame you if you tapped into your inner mixologist and created a fall, pumpkin cocktail too. But who would blame you for that?
1. Pumpkin Soup with Cranberry Apple Relish (to bring in all the fall flavors!).

Everyone else calls him Bucky.
Whatever you want to call him, he's a good cat. And by good, I mean he hangs around a lot hoping that you give him some food.
But I can't really blame him. He gets absolutely zero variety in his diet. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all exactly the same. The only thing special are his treats each night, which are actually just 4 or 5 pieces of a different type of kibble.
Humans have tons of variety in our diets. We can even have different flavored pasta if we want. I rarely eat the same thing for 2 meals in a week. If I were a cat, I'd probably beg too.
