Pumpkins, Cookies, and Vitamin D

Posted October 22, 2010

Some October news.

First, did you notice the carrots are gone from my header?  If you wonder why there are chives there instead, read this post.  In other housekeeping news, my recipe index is totally updated.  If you are searching for something, now it should be easier to find.

Last weekend, it was time to hit the pumpkin patch.  Every Halloween has been fun with our kids but as they get older, it becomes more exciting.  Graham came up with this pose on his own.

So of course, Spencer had to copy it.

And then I had to give it a try.  (Like my wellies?  I got them in London.)

Did you know that most people are vitamin D deficient in Seattle?  I think your level is supposed to be between 33 and 100 and at my last physical, mine was 18.  Our lack of sunlight might explain why my boys look as though they have never seen that strange round object in the sky.

Halloween means candy but it also means cookies.  Our amazing friend Denise sent us some great new cookie cutters, black sprinkles and that awesome cake/cookie stand.  (And yes, those are spiders hanging off it it.)

As this post goes live, I am off to New York for a couple of days of eating and catching up with friends both old and new.  I hope you all have a great weekend.
