fall on the upper west side, nyc

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!

Looks and sounds lovely! You are making me miss fall, and I'm a summer girl through and through!

Actually it's all those cute babies in the pumpkin patch on FB that are the real killer. So cute!

Sigh...I love the Upper West side. So wish I could live there (though I love my neighborhood, the UWS is just so charming). I love to see your pictures of it, especially in all it's autumn glory.

Oh fall, how I miss you. San Francisco, this warm weather is lovely but I'm itching for fiery leaves in big piles and crisp mornings that stay cool all day!

Hilary said...

I must ask you about this pumpkin coffee. I saw it at TJ's the other day and was pretty tempted.. but I didn't buy. So you like? And how do you take it? Milk and sugar?
