Saturday morning

WELL the Babylonian hallows eve party was fun. I snagged about 3 dozen leftover cupcakes, about 4 pounds of fresh jalapeno and habanero peppers and 2 medium large pumpkins that were not used. The ice cream and candy were all snagged before i could make a take home goodie bag. Anyhow the pumpkins were de-seeded and carved when i got home by the kids. The seeds are drying out and then they will be roasted. The peppers will be frozen for winter use and after Halloween the pumpkins will be cubed and blanched for cholent or blended/pureed for pumpkin pie and bread.. As Trash always says take advantage of all the opportunities to grab the excesses of others for your useage.

I went outside this morning to the outdoor office.I also put the tomato pots to bed by dumping the soil into the compost bin and any old fruit was removed from the stems and also added to the compost pile. Apparently the cold weather did a little damage to the greens but i think this warm up will bring them back, which is good cause I hate paying for lettuce. And besides mine tastes better.
As for last evening the kids wanted burgers so i went by bike over to the liquor store for beer, wine and smokes and then over to Wallie and got a 12 pack of coke before heading over to Carls Jr for burgers and fries. Mrs T and the son want the $6 bacon guacamole burgers and the girls wanted the Big Carls. I had the Philly steak burger and no fries with a beer. Good stuff.
