Happy Halloween!  I’ll be busy with babygrands later today,  so I just wanted to send a greeting before today’s festivities.  By the way, is it just me, or nowadays does it seem Halloween lasts for about a week?
I won’t bore you with more photos of my white pumpkins (although I do love them and I enjoy looking at all the blog photos of yours, so yall please keep ‘em comin’ ‘cause they’re good through Thanksgiving)!!!  This little boot always makes me smile too.  I don’t know why.

This year it held Starburst candies.  Can you guess why?  Because I really don’t care for Starburst candies.  I’m not too tempted by them.  But Reid and Caroline love them.   I do not keep Snickers on hand.  Snickers would not be safe from me.
Years ago, I found this book that was on the 75% off sale table at Barnes & Noble.  I bought it for the illustrations, but it does have some, shall I say, interesting, recipes in it as well.

And since it is Halloween, and there will be tricking and/or treating, I want to share one of the recipes with you.

Uh oh.  It looks like it needs to infuse for 3 weeks before it can ward off evil spirits.  So it is too late for this Halloween.  I guess you could always turn out your lights and leave…..

if you dare!
