WIAW 11: It Ain’t Pretty [+ Pumpkin Sage Polenta]


I had this post all written out…

                                                …and then THIS happened…

I’m still in shock.

How did this happen? Well, for starters, I follow Bob on Instagram. When I was looking at my Instagram feed yesterday morning, I noticed that he posted a photo from Baltimore. I freaked out a little bit that he was just 45 minutes away, and then later on in the afternoon, he posted a photo from DOWNTOWN FREDERICK. Where I live. I decided to take Jackson for a walk over by Baker Park (which is RIGHT by my house) and as luck would have it, spotted him right away! He actually was walking right towards me, and said “Hi! That’s a beautiful dog!” My heart started beating so fast, and I tried to form words- and finally said “Whoa! What are you doing here??” He said that they were filming an episode, so I’m thinking that a contestant on the upcoming season must be from Frederick! He asked me what my name is, and said how much he LOVED my town and how pretty it is. He was SO NICE. Hooray for Instagram!!

The funny thing is- for the last five years or so, I’ve said that if I could choose ONE celebrity to meet, it would be Bob Harper… so my life is complete, right?


Moving on.

Here’s my disclaimer before you view this post: the food is not pretty (for the most part). But, it all tasted really good! And there aren’t really any “spooky snacks,” but I think Jen’s graphic is pretty darn cute anyway. :)
