Last Weekend at Brian and Kelly's Pumpkin Patch
Last Weekend at Brian and Kelly's Pumpkin Patch

This weekend was so nice. We decided to stay home and enjoy Halloween in a completely different way than years past.

First, on Friday, we went to Brian and Kelly’s pumpkin patch and tree lot on Broadway near Rosemont (see photos).

We visit with Kelly every year. She is really nice and very knowledgeable about the produce and how to use it. We picked up some pie pumpkins and different squash so we could bake them this weekend.

They also sell beautiful trees closer to the Christmas holiday. The trees are very fresh and they last.

For Halloween, we watched the old, black and white film, “The Horror of Dracula”. It was great. On Saturday night we watched Disney’s scary films, Hocus Pocus and The Haunted Mansion. If you have not taken the Virtual Ride of the Haunted Mansion in the bonus features on the DVD, do it, it’s cool. Turn up the sound.

On Sunday we baked pumpkins, butternut squash, yams and sweet potatoes. After they cooled down we pureed them and froze them in half cup increments for cooking throughout the year. I hide veggies in all kinds of recipes.

Call me if you like to cook and want to add more veggies to your family’s meals. They don’t even have to know. It can be our little secret.
