dw guilted me into going apple a pumpkin picking yesterday saying," how many more years will the boy want to do this?"
so i dragged my butt out of bed and went to ochs orchards in warwick, ny.
i've never seen an orchard that was so picked out as this one. well, we've also never gone this late in the season before. but after pulling a cart up and down 4,000 hectares of empty trees in order to find about a bushel of various apples, some varieties i've never seen before, and picking out gianr "perfect" pumpkins ( how about that one, or that one? pick that one up and turn it 'round... naw, how about the first one way over there?
), we went to a restaurant that we haven't been to in years: the mason jar in mahwah, joisey. Mason Jar | Mahwah New Jersey | Barbeque Mahway NJ
dw had the lobster and shrimp tacos which were more of a wrap; my boy had a giant burger with jack cheese and sweet potato fries; i had the octoberfest special of sauerbraten, potato pancakes, and warm red cabbage slaw.
everything wad good, even the service considering the place was so packed that you couldn't even turn a candy from cheek to cheek in your mouth.
we'll be going back soon. hopefully when there's a few hundred less people. then, i took the night off before i dropped dead.
