Ready for Halloween



We are ready for the trick or treaters to come tonight. It is fun and in the Halloween spirit, to have a spooky greeting in place, as the children come to your door . Our neighborhood always has a lot of little ghosts and goblins out and about, looking for candy. Hopefully, the nasty weather from Sandy will not scare them away.

If they dare to ring the doorbell, this creepy witch will be there to say hello.

My daughter Megan, carved this Boo-tiful jack-o-lantern that will give a ghoulish glow to the front porch.

The candy is ready in the special Halloween bowl and we will try to resist the temptation to sample a piece or two.

There are pumpkin seeds for us to snack on throughout the evening. My method makes them perfect every time - place the seeds on a cookie sheet, lightly spray with butter favored cooking spray and sprinkle generously with salt. Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. So yummy :-)


I like to make us a special fall cocktail to enjoy while we are handing out candy. This year we will be having a drink I found on Pinterest, called the Apple Pie. It is cider, a shot of vanilla vodka and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Happy Halloween!
