A Harvestful Weekend

Hello dears. How was your weekend?

I'm sad to see mine end. Saturday, I ventured up to Cincinnati for my annual trip to Shaw Farms (home to my former college roomie) where I met friends Ginger and BJ. We picked out pumpkins and mums that I'll use to spruce up my living room and squash that I turned into a yummy soup. We also took a hayride through the mud and played in the pumpkin scenes. (I love fall!)

We then visited Jungle Jim's, the Disney World of grocery stores, where we spent two hours! As an avid foodie, I wasn't prepared for the trip, but I did manage to find some good munchies, such as these Food Should Taste Good Buffalo tortilla chips.

And of course, no trip to Cinci is complete without a stop at Skyline Chili.

Sunday, I hit the racetracks, but more to come on that later.

(P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends.)
