I don’t think I’ve ever created a bucket list before. Is that weird? I’ve looked at a few fall bucket lists and it’s always things like “walk in the leaves” and “carve a pumpkin”. Are these really bucket list worthy? I always think of bucket lists as “things to do before you die” kinda stuff, but let’s go for it. Welcome to my first ever bucket list!
1. Create (and drink) a fall themed cocktail.
I love creating recipes and I’m overdue for a new drink. I’m going to put this on the list and see what I can come up with that’s “fall themed”…something spiced? What should be considered fall-themed in a cocktail?
2. Find the perfect new sweater.
Why is this so hard?? OK…this is on my personal list of things that I need to do. I’m one of those people that can’t wear wool, so I think that severely limits me in the sweater department. It sucks, but I am still searching…I will find you.
3. Go to some sort of proper, dress up Hallowe’en party.
I love Hallowe’en…and I love dressing up. The real trick here is figuring out what costume to choose.
4. Make Mary’s Dad the perfect meatballs for his birthday.
Mary’s Dad is very ill. I love sending him food and have been sending him different types of meatballs whenever I can….Italian, Indian. His Birthday is coming up soon and he’s asked me to make him meatballs. I cannot leave this off my bucket list…I will make him some damn good meatballs.
5. Have a drink on a patio, one last time.
I live in Toronto, Canada…It’s already fall and freezing cold here. I am hoping for that last beautiful, Indian Summer day where I can have one last drink on a patio. Honestly, people will wear parkas to stay on a patio around here, but not me. One last day with nice weather…and a patio…and a drink.
How is that for a first ever bucket list?
