Halloween and Mexican Food

Howdy friends!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I wanted to pop in and say hello! We had a good Halloween over here keeping it pretty low key just hanging out waiting for trick-o-treaters. We ended up only getting only one lone phantom at our door and his mask scared the jeepers out of Gryffin, poor buddy. We carved some pumpkins to get in the Halloween spirit.

Everything is so beautiful and crisp and we’ve been enjoying getting outside.

Our trips to the high line canal are just my favorite. I love the beautiful trees and it’s just a peaceful place to be. Definitely one of my happy places.

We’ve also been eating some pretty delicious food this week. We headed over to Hacienda Colorado for some chili rellenos and had a great time.

The posole was delicious. Posole is one of my favorite Mexican style soups. Everett’s is menudo and I just can’t handle it. I can’t get past the whole tripe thing. Ew. 

I had a fun day at work last week and got to meet some animals at the zoo I’d never met before. This little loaf of bread is Petunia the prairie dog. She absolutely stole my heart. I didn’t want to put down this little chunk.

I also got to catch up with some porcupine buddies which always squeezes my heart. It was such a fun day!

I hope you had a great Halloween and are ready to get excited about Thanksgiving!


What’s your favorite holiday?

  1. Oh my gosh, that porcupine is the cutest!! How does the quill situation work with petting with bare hands?

    Also, love your blog; I found you through Hungry Runner Girl several months ago. Thanks for sharing your life with us!

    1. Melanie thanks so much for your comment!! I’m so glad you’ve stuck around with me as I figure this whole blog thing out!

      And that’s a great question about the quills. Fortunately, little Kale is a really sweet porcupine and as long as she’s calm, she won’t display her quills. They all kind of angle in the same direction so if you move your hand from her head towards the back, it’s actually quite easy and enjoyable to touch them. It’s quite the experience!
