This Halloween I was a domestic goddess. Nope, I didn't dress up in a costume, I just WAS a domestic goddess. (Not the Charlie Sheen type goddess-don't want there to be any confusion) Roasting an entire bird is basically a Thanksgiving only deal, so tackling one on Halloween-eve was pretty impressive, if I do say so myself.
I was actually just a really hungry, sore-legged, just ran 13 miles and can barely hold this 6-pound chicken domestic goddess, but whatever.
Is it just me or does this look like a tiny baby bird now? I promise, it was 6 pounds, served 4 and there are tons of leftovers. To go with the bird: roasted carrots, sweet potatoes and new potatoes, broccoli, corn and a homemade apple crisp. Except I was too focused on the Halloween beer tasting to take photos of the side dishes.
Some old favorites and some new ones...I liked everything but the Hoegaarten. Blech. Also, this was my first pumpkin beer - why does it not taste like pumpkin? So disappointing.
Bonus #752 about living in the boonies: while I made dinner, hubby can go outside and take pictures of the deer drinking water from the pond. Just stunning.
My legs are a little sore from yesterday's run-13 miles, and my last long run before the marathon (10 days!!!!) It didn't go quite as well as I had hoped. Heavy legs and a slow pace really brought me down. But I'll still make sure to get in my 3.1 miles (5k) today for Kiley's Virtual Halloween 5K! You can walk, run, or swim the distance, but be sure to enter today and try to win some of the great prizes!
Did anyone dress up for Halloween?
Um...no. Unless you bought that "domestic goddess" nonsense. I haven't dressed up in a few years, but I would really like to run a costume race one year, I think that would be so much fun.
Do you get trick or treaters where you live?
Ha! Not even close. I wish we did, I would love to see the little kiddos all dressed up.
Do you have any exercise planned for Halloween?
Yes! Excited to run the Virtual 5k. Go enter!
