Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Since we already had a night or trick or treating tonight will be an evening spent in. We are making a dinner with roast tofurkey (the photo above is before it went in the oven), and pumpkin maple cake for dessert. All the jack-o-lanterns will be lit, and the table will be covered in candles! Thomas is coming home early, and we all made some little handmade gifts to exchange to make it even more festive.

My oldest son wrote everyone a Halloween story, my youngest made drawings and a headless horseman out of clay. Then we will watch It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and then when the little one is in bed some of the old Roseanne Halloween episodes!

I hope everyone has a magical evening wether you are out collecting treats, costuming it up at a party, or staying in to watch some Halloween favorites like us :)

Oh and just wanted to share two books I’ve been loving… Recipe For Murder a cookbook with cuisine inspired by fiction. I love books like this! The combination of fiction and cooking what could be better? We already own Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes, and of course there are also the Star Wars cookbooks one and two, and let’s not forget the Star Trek cookbook either. Fun stuff!

Then there is Witches, Pumpkins, and Grinning Ghosts the history of Halloween symbols. We found this beautiful hardcover edition at a local used bookshop for $1. It has lots of illustrations through out and lots of interesting history too.
