I guess I am a bit square when it comes to Halloween. I usually don’t got out to parties nor do I dress up in costume. It amazes me how commercial Halloween has become over the last few years. However, I will take photos of cool costumes and eat up your candy, if you offer it to me. :) People dress up their homes like they would for Christmas with lights and other decorations. I went to San Francisco the first year I moved here and it was like “night of the living dead” for there were people everywhere. I got called a party pooper yesterday when I mentioned to a friend that I would be spending a quiet evening at home.
Tomorrow is November 1. Time to starting thinking about the holidays. I will be home for the holidays this year. I usually go home for Thanksgiving but I decided that I wanted to stay home this year. I have never cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for myself so this may be my first year. Of course, I will be gearing up for all the holiday baking. Right before Thanksgiving is a great time to stock up on all your holiday baking supplies. There are usually some great sales.
Speaking of baking, I was sent this recipe for Bill Nicholson’s Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding with Butter Rum Sauce. Are you feeling your arteries clogging yet? You know I am tempted to make this just once. My dad loved breading pudding but I am sure this would have been a bit much for him.
Whatever you decide to do tonight, have a happy and safe Halloween and save me some candy!
