So for some random reason today I got inspired to dress up for Halloween. I think the last time I dressed up for Halloween was at LEAST ten years ago. However, I cannot decide what I should dress up as. Of course I want to do something unique and original, but I am not sure what. Maybe I should just shave my head and go as Sinead O’Connor. Ha. Not really that original though. I want to do something clever, but somehow I think I have maybe waited to close to Halloween to be able to pull off clever.
So I WELCOME your ideas. Please share your ideas and comments below.
I was in a meeting yesterday and I kept having a craving for pumpkin. Something happens to me at the beginning of October when the leaves start to change colors and crisply fall to the ground. There is a noise of crunching leaves as you walk, a smell in the air, sometimes of fires in fireplaces or just the crispness of autumn. In Portland, there is still the fresh greenness, mixed with the colors, and of course the rain. With all that color and smell, I think of everything tasting of pumpkin. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, squash soup. Yum. I know I wrote about cranberry sauce the other day, but for me that just goes with Thanksgiving. Things with pumpkin I usually want to eat from October through January. Usually when I can no longer order a pumpkin spice latte, I know fall is over and winter has officially begun.
Just finished the loaf of pumpkin bread I made. Time for my next pumpkin recipe.
Happy weekend to you!
Pumpkin, squash all so good for you and at this time of year so easily available! I saw a funny costume for a banana the other day… almost posted it on my blog. Then I thought: why not go as Chiquita banana? http://www.google.ca/imgres?hl=en&client=firefox-beta&hs=0Ym&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1920&bih=917&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnsz&tbnid=DA3bMw02JZ7-lM:&imgrefurl=http://www.thisnext.com/item/7AF85439/Banana-Basket-Hat-Costume&docid=5AN9mSzXlPwgsM&imgurl=http://s5.thisnext.com/media/largest_dimension/B57B42CC.jpg&w=280&h=280&ei=naOKUMeaDqjn0QHn2YCIDg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=644&sig=112409378381053411910&page=1&tbnh=143&tbnw=143&start=0&ndsp=51&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:20,i:188&tx=89&ty=88
I love all the pumpkins flavors in fall but for me the real guilty pleasure is caramel apples. I forget how much I love them until October comes around.
Oh my, I might have to go get one too!
