Photo Challenge- Scenic B&W

This is the first time I'm entering this contest but I captured this image when we were in San Francisco of the Golden Gate Bridge and it really stuck with me, we could crop it and leave just the bridge and fog but the biker riding by just made the photo more interesting.

Weekend Tidbits

Busy weekend.
But to begin the weekend I'm going to rewind to Tuesday when I met Bobby Flay and picked up his Throwdown cookbook!
We can now return to the regularly scheduled program...
Since it was Halloween I bought some pumpkins to make baby food for Ben, anyone that knows well me knows I'm not a cook. I did my research and came up with directions. Now since I don't normally cook pumpkins I bought 5 pie pumpkins to make baby food and pie. After I cut 3 open I realized there is more "meat" in them than I thought. I had enough pumpkin from 3 pie pumpkins to make 40oz of baby food and two pies.I also baked the seeds. Yum!

I used a recipe from the Throwdown cookbook. The pumpkin pie on the right was completely from scratch, filling and crust, it was so much pumpkin that it actually made 2 pies and the one on the left I used a pre-made pie crust. It is delicious!

Ben wasn't feeling his best this weekend. He got his second round of the flu shot Friday and we also found out he had a minor ear infection... poor guy. So he had some fussy times over the weekend.

He did enjoy swinging for the first time.

Sunday we carved pumpkins and went to our neighborhood Halloween party.
Pretty darn good, if I do say so myself :) I actually had a Bulldog fan take a picture of it with his phone to forward to his friends.
