Postponing trick-or-treating until November 3rd threw me for a big loop. I procrastinated hard-core - bought my candy on November 1st to save money (then went back November 2nd and each bag had been marked down another dollar - GAHHH!). I carved my pumpkin that same night.
And I still decorated two hours before it started. Oops.
But, since I had time to kill in the early afternoon, James suggested that we go someplace new for lunch. He suggested Aladdin's Eatery in Squirrel Hill, which serves Middle-Eastern food - I'm not too familiar with the cuisine, but I'm open to new things and was anxious to try it out.

To start, we had the Hummus plus an order of Kibbie:
For our entrees, we both chose the Beef Schwarma Rolled Pitas: "Lightly seasoned beef strips, greens, tomato, onion, turnips, pickles, and parsley topped with Tahini Yogurt dressing, rolled in a pita.":

I was bummed.
Despite the display of desserts at the counter, we did not partake, as it was lunchtime and we had to get back to prepare for the trick-or-treaters. Maybe that's the highlight of the experience there, but I'll have to find out another time.
