HALLOWEEN IS NEXT WEEK! And even though I don’t go trick-or-treating, or go to any parties, or do anything at all really… I still (for some reason) get excited for Halloween. I’m trying to figure out what to be this year. I really need to make a new costume, especially since I wore the same costume the last 2 years in a row.
So, I have for you some Halloween-esque recipes. Some are more Halloween-themed than others; but since last year’s roundup focused pretty much solely on sweets, so I thought I’d throw in a couple of savory items for this year’s too. You can always dress them up to be more “Halloween-y” (use your imagination! <– CONFESSION: so right there I accidentally typed “imaginator” and I really think I like “imaginator” way better)
Since it’s Thursday, I’ll give you a couple of “Thursday Things” before I dive into the round-up. Like this thing that I watched for WAY TOO LONG. Like, I’m debating if I may have brain damage “too long.” I’ve also been missing my usual Thursday shows so I’ve replaced 30 Rock by watching these over and over. And over.
Oh, and then there’s this, for your daily dose of cuteness.
And this for your daily dose of weirdness. What is going on over there in Japan anyway? How do they come up with all these things?
Last but not least, I can’t wait to do this to my future child. Those of you who have children, please do this and send me the video. K? Thanks.
