It’s here! Trick or Treat Day came and went. I was so in the weeds with this Belle costume, which Hannah asked for back in July, and I ended up sewing the whole thing on Friday night. I stayed up all night, it took 11 straight hours of sewing, I binged all 9 episodes of Stranger Things 2 while I did it. But she is so excited, and I love how this gown turned out.

The weather hasn’t been spectacular fall weather yet this year, to be honest. But Mother Nature has had it with us, so it’s not that surprising. We’re still trying to do All Of The Fall Things, though, which means basking in apple season. Even when we set out in the morning dressed for fall, and need shorts and tank tops by lunchtime.

This is yummy, no carb, easy on a weeknight if you can get some good shrimp. I found this one on Pinterest, from Carlsbad Cravings. This kind of recipe is everything I want for a weeknight. It takes no time to put together, and I don’t have to be at the stove watching it, but it still looks pretty when it’s done. I love thin asparagus–my favorite vegetable next to Brussels sprouts. It’s pretty light, like a summer meal, but the weather has been so mild this fall, until the last couple of days, that it’s still been good light dinner weather.

Adam was actually in Texas for work on his birthday, but when he got home from that trip we had a weekend picnic at one of our local parks. We actually learned as we were leaving that Hamilton was not supposed to be in that park, but we didn’t see the signs. We’re still learning this whole dog ownership thing, but he had the most amazing afternoon out with us as well.

After our week in Italy, we actually headed on to Greece for another week. We just got home yesterday. My mother-in-law and stepfather-in-law have a vacation home there, so we stayed with them and spent the week bumming around the local beaches and towns.

The big draw, the real reason we were in Italy last week, was to see Venice. I’ve been to Rome, and I did an art librarianship course in Florence in grad school. I love Italy. But I’d never been to Venice.

Our first full day in Italy, we headed to Treviso, which was actually the closest city to the house. It’s much smaller than Venice, and we were there on a Sunday in August. It was practically deserted, but we ate some pizza at Pizzeria Sant’Agostino di Mansi Patrizia, and it was so good I’m still thinking about it, and we wandered the streets. Treviso has a mini canal system like Venice, it was fun to just walk along the water and in and out of the streets.

I  haven’t posted for a while, but it’s summer, and work has been in full swing, and we’ve been gearing up for this European vacation before school starts. We spent the week with some of my in-laws, including my brother-in-law Thomas, at a villa outside of Venice. It was an exceptional week.

Our cherry season is over here, but it was a good, long one this year! Every year this is Hannah’s favorite fruit picking trip, and she just keeps growing up on me.

Amazing, easy, made in one pan–it’s everything I want for dinner. I’d never tried this dish before but have seen many recipes, so I figured Alton Brown’s recipe (which has a great Good Eats video in the link below) would be a good place to start.
