Halloween is in full effect at our house.
I bet some of you are out trick or treating as I type...
We've had a wonderful Halloween so far.
Mister ran out for a late afternoon appointment while I whip up our Halloween feast.
Of course, I snuck off to say hi to you and share some pics.
I have baked up a storm today.
Filling the dining table with all sorts of goodies.
It's all pumpkin happy and glowing in there.
The funniest thing is happening.
The gourds that grew way up high in the trees are slowly moving down to reachable heights.
The vines are drying and sagging, just enough to grab a few.
It's so interesting to see, and quite handy too, those sneaky vines.
I love treat making on Halloween, you?
It was a super lovely baking day.
Although, the caramel apples need to happen still.
I was watching the real story of Halloween on the history channel.
Did you see that last night?
Anyhow, I was particularly interested in the soul cakes.
So, this is my own version.
I'll make the traditional version in a couple days, for day of the dead.
These are turtle brownies with powdered sugar.
I wish Halloween lasted more than one day, you?
It's weird how tomorrow, it's November, eeeeeek!
But for right this very moment, we have Halloween.
What would Halloween be without homemade caramel corn, I ask?
Have you tried this recipe yet?
It's scrumptious beyond words!
And it's always a hit.
It's going really really fast, I tell ya.
We carved a few pumpkins this morning.
Can you tell who carved the one below?
Haha, yep, ML.
Looks like some of our guests are arriving.
Seems they can't find their pointy hats.
As I set out our guests I said to Mister Lovee, "you know this is certifiable behavior..."
"Having doll guests and all..."
But he just shrugged, like it's so our norm, that it's no biggie.
Poor man, I turned him crazy.
Anyhow, scoop up some treats on your way out...
Or, stay and party with us all night.
I am about to make a delicious dinner.
Then movies and sweets til we drop.
Don't forget a magic spell, or two, or three.
And beware of houses that haunt, okay?
We'll be here all cozy.
Waiting to hear your tales of this glorious night.
I've been watching Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus.
What a good goooood day.
But honestly, what is today without Midnight Margaritas???
Well, off I go.
My stove is calling.
See you extra soon!!
