Well guys, this is it. I will be on my way to Europe tomorrow morning for a little over two weeks! I’ll be busy hopping through Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, and Italy. I can’t wait to share my adventures with you along the way – just don’t miss me too much though, okay? If you have any suggestions on nummy things to eat, or fun things to do, please comment and let me know. Ciao!

Pumpkins, Bacon, and Sally

This weekend was a lot of fun. I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch before, so I thought it was about time. The weather was perfect, and so much to do and see. It was called Vertuccio Farms down in Gilbert – only about 10 minutes from my house and I never knew it. Best of all? I think I found the love of my life.

So many things! Where to start?

The pumpkin patch of course! So many choices!

Wee-Be pumpkins were oh so cute, and just my size.

I had no idea a pumpkin was a pretty flower before it was a pumpkin!

BIG.

After the pumpkin patch, I learned how to milk a cow.

A whopping 6 inches tall.

The corn maze looked so fun, but I was so scared I was gonna get lost!

Here I go…

This doesn’t seem so bad…

HELP!

Ahh so pretty.

Well, I thought I was safe once I found my way out of the maze… maybe not.

BACON!

Dirty bacon.

Hungry bacon.

Wet bacon… bacon swims?

Moo moo wasn’t quite as dirty… she didn’t look very milkable though like the other one.

He was really loud.

Is this really what I think it is?

OMG BUNNIES! HI CUZ!

Just when I thought my fellow bunny sighting couldn’t be topped, I met Sally. Sally was the cutest, friendliest, softest donkey (and only) I’ve ever met. I think I love you, Sally.

Beer, Brats, and Bunny

Well Bunny Fans, it’s my favorite time of the year – Fall. This means many things… colonial-wear, amazing scented candles, pumpkin spiced lattes (this bunny likes it on ice… I know, I’m weird, but it’s Arizona!), and most of all – Oktoberfest. Which equals two things: beer and brats.

Brat Haus – a delicious year round treat for me, but extra special in the Fall.

Yay!

They have the best selection of beer in my hood.

And a couple extra special choices for this month! Check it this big, tall, yummy Hefeweizen.

This big boy was delish too.

Now the important part – what to eat?!

I started off with a delicious house-baked soft pretzel, with cheese for dippin’!

I’m sorry, but I have no idea why this photo makes this brat look… unappetizing. But it’s the only one I got, so you will just have to pretend and take it from me – it’s incredible. A spicy bratwurst topped with root beer soaked onions. YEP, ROOT BEER SOAKED ONIONS.

I had a little too much to drink, so they gave me a lift in their company car. Just my size!

Eat at Joe’s

I can’t believe it’s taken me SO long to do a post about the BEST restaurant in the valley – Joe’s Farm Grill, located in Gilbert, Arizona. I’m back from my summer travels, and this was the place I missed the most. My favorite thing to get is a good old cheeseburger. But, decided I needed a change. Have a look! Even though it all looks delicious, try not to lick the screen. Gross.

Here it is!

I went early enough in the day, but on most nights the line is out the door and down the walkway.

See the TV screen? That’s Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives! He visited here a few years ago and sampled some of the goods too.

The restaurant is actually a house that was converted. The owner, Joe (duh), grew up here. Cool huh?

This is just so friggin’ awesome – BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard, and mayo all dispensed from these sweet little tubes.

YUM. BBQ chicken pizza in my belly! Ugh it was so so delicious.

The grilled wedge salad was dang good too!

After grubbin’, I walked right over to a neighboring community garden.

Here, there are about 40 individual plots right between Joe’s and a neighborhood called Agritopia.

12 whole acres of community urban farming!

Crop after crop after crop!

So big and pretty.

I had NO idea this was how artichokes looked on the stem!

I love it here.

I urge anyone and everyone to give this place a shot. There’s so much to learn about Joe’s, the community farm, and Agritopia. Please please check it out, links are below. And P.S. – don’t leave without checkin’ out the bathrooms. You’ll be greatly entertained!

The Oregon Trail

Tahoe has been amazing, but it was soon time to head north to Florence, Oregon to visit some of Mimi’s family. On the way, I saw some super random towns and sights. Check it out!

Rough and Ready? Who names their town Rough and Ready? Random.

Smartsville?! You human folk are weeeeeird.

LAMA! I guess Tina from Napoleon Dynamite found a new home in Smartsville…

Half way there! – Mt. Shasta.

Bye bye big mountain.

SO EXCITED.

There were lots and lots!

This is my Mimi’s Aunt’s garden… so my great aunt, I guess? She had lots of nummy things… EXCEPT FREAKIN’ CARROTS.

Huh. Purple asparagus. This stuff was pretty neat, because after you cook it – it turns green. Magical asparagus.

Isn’t it pretty?!
