Pumpkin picking Part II

After getting pretty muddy in the fields, we headed out to get some local vegies.

We stopped to get this:

Ask me if I’m happy about getting a semi natural smile? Yes.

Then on to shop a bit.
Ravenous child eating some corn on the cob:

Picked up some red peppers. I stuffed them with beef, onions, walnuts and raisins this week and a side of sweet potato.
Leeks – I plan on making soup
Broccoli and Cauliflower – plan on using as sides for dinner this week. Maybe I’ll make a cauliflower soup? hmmmmm.
Brussel Sprouts – I roasted with olive oil, s&p and served with a rack of baby lamb chops

We picked up some pizza for the kids and a sub for the adults. Headed to the beach for a sandy picnic and some play time.

After all that, we headed back to my sister’s and gave the kids baths. They passed out in the car and we didn’t hear a peep out of them till 9am the next morning.

It was more than nice.

One more post coming your way from this day.  Maybe Friday.
