We’ve talked about having a harvest party for a long while now, years even. But this weekend we finally did it. It just so happened to be a certain young boy’s second birthday too, so on top of eating and visiting we also got to do some singing and cake eating.
The weather was gorgeous, cool enough to have pumpkin soup but warm enough to enjoy sitting outside in the warm sun. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the frame of mind to take photos of the food Scott made for everyone, but he truly outdid himself. We put our dining room table outside, put the two extra leaves in it and every last inch of it was filled with platters of food. Five different type of crostini, shrimp ceviche, fennel and grapefruit salad, tomato and mozzarella salad, fruit platters, cheese platters, deviled eggs, and the curried pumpkin soup. We made sure that each dish contained something from our garden, even if it was a small thing like herbs.

Thank you to our fine friends and family, some of whom drove over an hour to come, for sharing with us. We are so lucky to have you in our lives. Thank you for celebrating our favorite season and for wishing our little guy a happy birthday.
