Sunday ended up being a pretty busy day because we were preparing for having friends over for a tomato canning and pumpkin carving extravaganza. We went to an entirely too crowded pumpkin patch on Saturday and picked up a few pumpkins that had to be dealt with on Sunday, so we had some friends over and sat down to carve some pumpkins.
In the meantime, Eric and a friend were posted in the kitchen canning the last of this year's heirloom tomatoes.
My friends are the closest thing I have to family in Seattle, and I have to say that last night felt like a family night. Eric made the chili and we all pitched in to make the cornbread while sipping on cider, then sat down to a lovely dinner. Every last bit of food was completely devoured. Now THAT is a good evening.
