Spooky Times

Halloween is hands down my favorite holiday. I used to celebrate big. We’d invite about 70-80 people to dinner and dancing (we had a big house then and we hired a DJ).

I’d make 13 courses. Starting off we’d have five or six appetizers in the bar area. Can you say blue cheese stuffed olives floating in vodka? We’d call those eyeballs.

Then I’d serve a buffet that went along a theme. The theme would match our costumes. So the year my husband and I went as Rhett and Scarlett from Gone with the Wind we served southern food.

The dessert buffet might have a cake covered in an icing spiderweb with candy spiders. One year I did a cake that was a red velvet cake and it had a hand coming out of the top of the cake.

You get the idea.

This year will be a calmer Halloween celebrated with all things pumpkin, so I thought you might enjoy this recipe for pumpkin pancakes. If you decide to drizzle them with syrup, take it easy on the sugar level.

Here, also is my Halloween greeting for you. Share this with your children and if they are older they can share it with their little goblins, too.

Happy Halloween!
