Vegetables, Jack-o-lanterns, and a Root Beer River

This past weekend was both crazy and incredibly relaxing. Friday was fun- the kids and I carved Jack-o-lanterns while Mike's band practiced. The kids did a really good job of drawing faces and I didn't cut any fingers off carving them! The pumpkin seeds turned out really nice, too. I spiced them with cumin, coriander, and chili powder.

On Saturday we had to clear out the garden, because there was a chance of freezing weather and we were going out of town for our anniversary. So here's the bounty:

We also filled 16 gallon baggies with lacinato kale, green curly kale, and collard greens for freezing. We gave away about 6 more bags and still have an entire row of red Russian kale. Anyone need any greens?

Since we were going on a road trip to Lutsen on Lake Superior, we needed plenty of road food. These "You got peanut butter in my chocolate" Cookies from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan were perfect! Probably my new favorite cookie.

Here's us looking silly and cold in front of Lake Superior.
The highlights of this trip include:
Losing $9 in a casino
Jacuzzi, tator tots, and Desperate Housewives
Hiking up down-hill ski slopes in amazing 50 degree sunny weather for 3 hours
Seeing the Cascade River Falls (it looks like a river of root beer)
Sipping chocolate, Jacuzzi, and CSI
And eating tempeh reubens with my sweetie
