A Beautiful Halloween Day

by Meghann on October 31, 2009

It wasn’t too long after I posted this morning that hunger hit me like a truck!

Derek and I were both craving old fashion deli sandwiches for lunch. I really wanted a nice turkey sandwich and took the opportunity to try a deli in Winter Park that always has a long wait at the counter – a sure sign this place is good!


Brandywine’s Delicatessen was all about the basics – no fancy deli stuff here. Once you make your way to the counter you choose the bread, meat, cheese and toppings then they prepare the sandwich fresh while you pay. There was a lovely selection of side salads available too, but I thought the sandwich would be large enough to fill my hunger.


I chose a simple Oven Roasted Turkey on Pumpernickle with all the toppings – hold the cheese.


My sandwich was piled high with Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, Olives, Roasted Red Peppers, Banana Peppers and Deli Mustard. Yum! The only thing that would have made this better would be if they toasted the bread or pressed it.


Instead of chips I opted for a double order of pickles. I love my pickles!


I cleaned my plate. I needed all that great protein and carbs after my run this morning.

When I purchased my lunch there was a candy jar at the register. I couldn’t resist a Kit Kat to end my meal with.


P.S. Kit Kats & Reeses are my favorite candies of all time!! You know in case you were curious. πŸ˜‰

After lunch we walked around Park Ave where a bunch of little kids were going from store to store collecting candy. They were all so cute, I just wish I could have snap a few photos with out any parents giving me funny looks.

Instead Derek did a cute shot of Maddie and I on our stroll.


We then got the bright idea to walk the 2.5 mile loop around Lake Baldwin.



Halfway through it occurred to me that a leisurely 2.5 mile walk the same day as a 16 mile run wasn’t the brightest idea I’ve ever had. My legs were starting to yell at me!

We managed to take a break at the dog park about 3/4 of the way around. Despite just walking 2 miles Maddie had no problems showing all the dogs who was boss.



All the walking left me hungry again. As soon as I walked in the door I had a small bowl of Dried Fruit, PB Pretzels, and PB Puffins to hold me over until dinner.


For being such a great girl today Maddie earned her own Halloween Treat from the dog store.



We wore her out. She won’t budge from the couch. lol


This was actually our goal. Poor Maddie will be in her crate all evening. Derek and I are heading to a Halloween Party and we wanted to leave her nice and tired so she wouldn’t be too upset at us.

Speaking of Halloween, its time to get my hair did and transform myself into a pretty, pretty princess. πŸ™‚ I LOVE playing dress up! Its my favorite game, which is probably why I love Halloween so much. πŸ™‚

You can check out last year’s Halloween Adventure on this post and for a recap of costumes from Halloween’s past head to this post.

Happy Halloween!!

Maddie is so adorable! I’m planning to get a dog within the next year and you’re making me wanna look into Jack Russels she’s so cute!
If you like Reese’s and Kit-Kats you’d probably love Reese Stix. I just had one the other night and it’s like a Kit-Kat mixed with Reese’s! It was pretty tasty!
Enjoy your party tonight!

Cuuute pictures! I love deli sammies with all of the fixins, and pickles are great for crunch alongside them.

I love when businesses do special things for animals, like Maddie’s treat. There’s a bank at home that keeps treats for dogs who come through the drive-through with their owners. πŸ™‚
