two Halloween parties on Saturday

Are you going in costume?

I'm sure he'll be wearing his pearls.

Regarding  the parties, I'm going as Tom Hanks' character from A League of Their Own - Jimmy Dugan.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

What are you making? It just occurred to me this morning that my work is having a pot-luck lunch on Tuesday, and I'll either have to come up with something or stay home that day.


I'm making a Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Casserole.

Here's something I just made yesterday evening for the first time, shrimp and grits. It was fast and easy. Frozen shrimp is finally becoming affordable again. I paired it with a salad of arugula and cherry tomatoes from my garden and baby corn. The chives and lemon juice were also from my garden.

I love shrimp and grits and have been thinking of making some myself. I bought grits at the store the other day for this very purpose. I was thinking of waiting until fresh shrimp goes on sale. Was the frozen good? What brand?

I also love garden arugula and wish I still had some. Unfortunately, we (my ex-husband did most of the planting) grew only one batch of it. We should have reseeded! It was the most delicious arugula I've ever had, aside from last summer's garden arugula. I've pretty much sworn off buying the stuff in store clamshells -- my last several boxes have gone bad long before their due date.

Chuck, that casserole sounds delicious! Only in Minnesota, we'd call it "hot dish."

I'm not sure what to do about our work pot luck. One of the problems is I don't want to wear a costume, but I also don't want to be the boring person who doesn't get into the spirit of the holiday.

I only go into that job twice a week and I can generally pick my days, so I don't have to go that day.

Still deciding ...

The invitation says "bring some scary food (or just food)." I saw a recipe for deviled eggs with spiders on them You make the deviled eggs, then you cut kalamata olives into a spider body, head and legs. That sounds like waaaayyyy too much trouble. Actually, deviled eggs always seem like too much trouble, though I love them. Actually, cooking period is seeming more and more like too much trouble.

Can't you just go the easy way with the scary food? Cook some regular casserole food, then put saran wrap over the casserole and on top you put the biggest, ugliest plastic spider (or zombie hand, or....) you can find in a store. That way it looks nice and scary as long as the buffet is not opened. Once the food is available, nobody cares anyway :laugh:

That's a good idea. Better than cutting kalamata olives into tiny little spiders' legs, for sure!

that's what my friend and I did to her sisters cake for the Halloween party.

She made a spice cake, and we cut it up and put bats, spiders and eyeballs on it.   LOL

I am glad that I got everything done yesterday.   Today was windy and rainy all day.  I would not have wanted to carry groceries  and laundry through it!

I pretty much stayed in the apartment all day, nice and dry!   :)

I did order my holiday cards, and did some  online Christmas shopping.
