Sometimes, you start out with the best intentions. The weather’s finally back down into the double digits, and then you happen upon such recipes like sweet potato gnocchi with fried sage and chestnuts. I mean come on, seriously? How can you not want that in your mouth right now? If my overuse of italics hasn’t clued you in by now, I wanted this in a bad sort of way.
Life lessons learned from Halloween:
My refined adult palatte has realized that Sixlets are slightly fruit flavored, and are not just sad, wannabe M&Ms. Reeses and Butterfingers are much better as an adult (I didn’t like peanut butter as a kid, I know, weird), nobody on my street is cool enough to give out Almond Joy or 100 Grand, and Dots are still as crappy as ever. And really, who the hell hands out peanuts? Fail, neighbor down the street, fail.
But most importantly? Pumpkin carving is way beyond a two-year old.
But all this dressing up nonsense is over, and guess what was in the store last week?
You hear that? Oh wait, neither do I.
Parker’s in bed, and Tom out gettin’ jiggy wit’ it.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF.
Oh wait, there it is. Ahh, much better. Really, is there any sound better than the pop! of a cork?
Anyone else want a glass? We’ve got bottles and bottles left from the housewarming. Clearly, my friends know me well.
…chicken dinner? Or maybe not, as you’ll have plenty of options on what’s for dinner, Christina. Congrats on the win! You’re mailing me some delicious confection that you’ve whipped up from the inspiration I’m sending you, right? I’ve emailed you for you contact info, so check your inbox. :)
Party pics and kitchen updates coming soon!
Last 12 hours to enter the Bon App giveaway! I’ll be announcing the winner tonight after It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! airs at 7 PM, Arizona time. It’s a half an hour, so as soon as I get my kid into bed after it’s over (about 7:32) you can expect to see something up here. You know, just in case you’re sitting in front of your monitor with bated breath anxious to know if you won or not. I know that I am that super important to you all.
