Ahhh it’s November 1st! November is going to be a very busy, but exciting month, and I can’t wait!
Eric and I took it easy on Friday. I finished making my Halloween costume and we went to bed early, since we knew Saturday night would be late.
Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to go PUMPKIN PICKING!! We searched forever to find a good place, and eventually settled on Styer Orchard in Langhorne, PA.
It was about a 40 minute drive from the city, but definitely worth it.
I was scared that since we waited till the last weekend in October there wouldn’t be any pumpkins left, so I was really excited to see a lot of pumpkins, and good ones at that!
I really liked Styer’s Orchard. It was free to ride to the pumpkin patch and we got a medium size pumpkin and 4 small ones for a total of $6!
After picking we drove to New Hope, PA to go eat at Sprig & Vine! I have been wanting to eat there for a while, and our anniversary is this week, so we decided to eat an anniversary lunch there. We had always heard that you need reservations, although we weren’t sure if that applied to dinner only. We made reservations for lunch, and I am happy that we did. While it was sort of empty when we arrived, it became packed within half an hour.
Eric ordered the Tempeh Reuben sandwich.
And I ordered the Edamame Falafel Wrap.
Both were really good, and some of the best sandwiches/wraps we have eaten.
For desserts we went with the Olive Oil Cake. You can see my hands in the background waiting to dig in. The cake was delicious.
And our fun adventure did not stop there! After lunch we crossed the bridge to New Jersey to check out River Horse Brewery.
For $1 you can get 4 mini cups of their beer, and they offer free tours.
River Horse was the smallest brewery I have been too, but the beer was good, and that’s all that matters! All of their beer is unfiltered and all are vegan, minus the Oatmeal Milk Stout which contains lactose.
After the tour we went alcohol shopping since it’s cheaper in New Jersey that PA.
The drive home was really pretty, and got me all in the spirit of fall.
We came home with a 6 pack of River Horse.
And a few nice larger bottles.
And then it was time to get ready for Halloween!
I was an owl! I made my own costume and was really proud of it! My usual rules for costumes are that it needs to be warm and I need to be able to ride my bike.
Eric has started a tradition of wearing my ‘slutty’ costumes from college. So this year he was a sexy cop. Except the dress was too short and he had to put on shorts.
We met up with a few friends before heading to the parties.
Then it was party time!
We had a great night but stayed out waaaay past my normal bedtime.
I don’t have too many photos from Sunday because it was full of fail. Eric and I woke up and got ready to head downtown for some shopping. He wanted some running clothes and I wanted a hydration belt. Well we checked out a few places and there was nothing to be found! All the belts I found were in the wrong size, so I didn’t even get to try on one. And then to top off our failed Sunday my bike got a flat tire. So we had to take care of that. Then poof, the day was over with.
Eric was kind enough to change my flat, so I offered to prep dinner. We tried something new tonight and made nori rolls!
I started by prepping cauliflower rice. This was really easy, I just threw it in the Vitamix and let it work it’s magic.
And we just used fresh veggies and a ginger cashew cream to complete the rolls.
It other exciting news, today is the first day of VEGAN MOFO!
Eric and I participated last year and it was a lot of fun. Vegan MoFo is Vegan Month of Food. So for all of November we are going to be posting about vegan food. But I kind of want to open it up even more, and want to talk about veganism in general, because it’s not all kale and hemp. So anything in particular you want to see? Anything about veganism you are curious about?
