Boston Pumpkins

Last Saturday Claire, Sophie & I spent a good 3 hours unsuccessfully searching for raclette cheese in the North End & Beacon Hill neighborhoods...there were lots of Italian cheeses to be found, but not such a great selection of French ones. In any case, at least our travels brought us past this impressive pumpkin festival in Government Center. That's a lot of pumpkins, but as you can tell from the "Scoregourd", they were significantly shy of the Guiness World Record for most jack o' lanterns in one place, at least during our visit.

By the way: we did figure out a source of cheesy goodness in order to stage a successful raclette cheese party. Havarti & Muenster cheeses will do in a pinch.

And another by the way: congrats to the Rays for beating the Bosox in 7. As for my take on the World Series: Go Phillies! As a former Philadelphian, I can attest to the fact that Philly is one of the most tortured sports cities in the U.S., and they really deserve a championship. Apparently the Phillies are the losingest franchise in U.S. pro sports history. As one of my friends from Philly once said about them: "It's like they're the Washington Generals, only they don't get paid to lose!"

Just a tip, if you would like the real raclette deal: check out
The cheese tastes just like the original Swiss raclette cheese and it's much better than any substitute.

You know, on October 25, New York is going to beat the Boston record for most pumpkins carved in one day. They are shipping over 30,000 pumpkins to central park, so everyone can carve them. Go NY!!! haha. Anyway, I will not be doing my part, as I will be with you in Boston...
I can't wait to see you kids this weekend!
