despite a lot of green leaves that have yet to turn their autumn hue, fall is in full swing with door decorations and pumpkins upon entrance at every restaurant. the crisp morning air turns into warm afternoons and our apartment smells like trader joe's pumpkin coffee mixed with a fluffy pup whose velcro-esque fur attracts every leaf particle from riverside park.
due to hectic schedules this month we've been cooking less and less and eating out more and more. we made up for it this weekend with a joint effort in balsamic roasted brussels sprouts and mexican quinoa soup.
redfarm finally opened in the neighborhood, though we've yet to make it over since they aren't open for dinner just yet. in the mean time, minestrone soup with focaccia from salumeria rosi has made the restaurant rotation.
after dinner activities include a night-walk with sam, a brief tidy-up, answering necessary emails pertaining to the next day's activities, a fresh pot of pumpkin coffee, candy corn, and back-to-back parks and recreation. we're almost caught up! ethel beavers!
and sunday morning activities include a walk to the farmers' market followed by ed watching football whilst i get some work done.
i'm pretty sure that covers everything in the completely useless information department. your turn.
ps: downtown too.
