Some things about Halloween this year were still very traditional, but we also did some things a little different. There were still Halloween sugar cookies, and dressing Elle up in her hot dog costume, but we didn’t carve pumpkins for the first time since we’ve been married, and we didn’t hand out candy. Our friend’s little boy did a very good job of that. See, this year on Halloween we had more of a Thanksgiving feast. Thanks to our friends Beth and Brad we had a fabulous fall feast with some great friends. The best part was all I had to do was open up my house and enjoy the food.
Our good friends the Farmers joined us.
The kids were so lucky they got Mac and Cheese, yum.
And we got all this beautiful food, braised beef short ribs, butternut squash ravioli in a browned butter sage sauce, spinach salad with a warm bacon dressing, and dark pumpernickel bread with apple cider!
Thanks to these wonderful guys!
It was so fun, like something you see out of a magazine.
Here is our candyman. He did a great job keeping all the trick-or-treaters happy.
Chef Beth did an excellent job and deserves a big round of applause. (no we did not have any popsicle sticks, a minor detail that was over looked.)
And Elsie reminded us all of what Halloween is all about, CHOCOLATE!
Earlier in the month Dave and I also went to an adult Halloween party. It was a blast.
