November Farmers Market and Pizza with Friends

Today was our last day to go to the Farmers Market in 2016. 
And it was still nice enough to bike there.


I'm always amazed at how much food you can still get mid-November.
Few people go at this time in the year.

We stocked up so we had enough produce to last us until Thanksgiving.


And then some.

Meadow insisted on getting the strawberries from the reseller. Some were squished by the time we got home. Meadow ate them all and made a rainbow.

Of course now I had to make a grocery list.

We were having friends over for dinner and really needed to go grocery shopping. First stop Costco.

Everyone else has a cart full of crap. We stick with the healthy stuff.

After we got home Scott prepped all the toppings for homemade pizzas.

And then we baked them up with Brent and Shannyn.

Meanwhile Meadow and Eleanor had the time of their lives.

It's been awhile since we have had homemade pizza. I think pizza is the only thing I could eat every week.

The highlight was apple, turnip and buffalo mozzarella pizzas with a bit of spinach with a alfredo sauce. 

And hanging with friends.

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine.

We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation.

Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas. 
I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years. 
Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place.
Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home.

When Scott told me his mom wanted us to clean his grandparents house I …
