Time for the Ghosts and Goblins and Witches to be
out and about!
We like to feed our little ghosts and goblins and witches well
And so we always make treats for Halloween
This year it's cupcakes
My favorite cupcake recipe
Baked in these candy corn decorated cupcake papers
Frosted white, and decorated with real candy corn
Besides our local ghosts and goblins and witches
I'm told that grandgirl Lucy will be a black cat this year
Her package of cupcakes have been wrapped and mailed.
She may be too little to really eat them
But I wanted to start the tradition early
Halloween treats from Nana!
And a tradition that my mother started when I was small
That I continued as well
Chili on Halloween
Daughter Sarah also continues the tradition
Grandgirl Lucy will be the Fourth Generation to enjoy
the traditional bowl of Halloween chili!
We eat in the breakfast room
For the ghosts and goblins and witches
often come before dark
Big bowls of chili and crackers
Lots of crackers
And for dessert
(besides the candy bar that I always save)
Like this tart!
For when I come in
With a bracing cup of hot tea!
Husband Jim, however, gets his first slice right after dinner
So that he can enjoy his second slice with me
when I come in after the trick or treaters are gone!
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.
