I love Halloween! How fun is it to dress up like someone else and have no
reason to NOT eat Candy Corn? The boys are really starting to get into it, which makes it really fun. My in-laws are going to be in town so why not plan a little get together that is more for the adults than the kiddos? Good excuse right?
My In-laws are arriving in town for a week and though I don’t know if we will have any trick or treaters in our neighborhood, I’m prepared with 3 giant bags of candy. My front stoop is decorated with welcoming decor and I’ll be dressed up either as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz or as Princess Leia. I really should get a witch costume.
We will have a themed dinner here at home complete with a chosen cocktail and a spooky dessert.
We carved pumpkins on Sunday and I found this great little link on you
guessed it: Food and Wine.com on what to do with pumpkin seeds. It has some great ideas.
You can also check out all of my Halloween ideas and recipes on Pinterest.
This is the menu I have going for this year.
So, It is called an Almond Joy Martini but Frangelico is actually hazelnut liqueur. Whatever, I’m sure this will taste lovely. Here’s the recipe:
- 1 oz Chocolate Vodka
- 1 oz Frangelico
- 1 oz coconut rum
1. Combine all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until combined then strain into a cocktail glass.
Ryan still hasn’t figured out what he’s going to be. Chase is going to be Boba Fett from Star Wars and Andrew will be Yoda. I think the night will be a success, with or without the trick or treaters. We’ll have great food, great costumes, and enough candy to cause diabetes.
