In general, we had a lovely warm and (relatively) sunny month here in Portland. I always think of October this way–a gentle yielding to fall. By the time Halloween rolls around, it’s dark by dinner time, and you’re getting the winter clothes out of storage. Do I still have black gloves? Why can’t I find black gloves?
This month we talked about kid-friendly places to eat that are also vegetarian-friendly, marveled at all the vegan topping choices at Sizzle Pie, tried out Next Level Burger for the first time, and Mi Mero Mole for the fifth or sixth or seventh time. (I like burritos.) We also talked about my trip to San Juan Island, apple tasting at Portland Nursery, and a visit to farmer’s markets and our local family farm. I also pinned a bunch of pumpkin recipes, if you’re not tired of them yet.
What about you? How was your October? Did you make it to the pumpkin patch, like we did yesterday?
