Halloween Dinner - 10/31/2018

It's also trick or treat for UNICEF day.

https://www.unicefusa.org/trick-or-treat

Mrs. T is going to daughter and SIL's to pass out candy so they can take their kids out trick or treating. Our town's trick or treat was yesterday. As expected, we had two kids show up. Daughter and SIL get over a hundred.

Dinner will be a little disjointed, so I'm trying to decide between American chop suey, goulash, and Johnny Marzetti.

My daughter, SIL and grandson will be coming so GS centric or treat here. We traditionally have American chop suey. It's a meal that can be prepared ahead and just kept warm until we're ready to eat.

I usually make soup on Halloween. This year it will be beef, veggies and barley. I will make early in the Instant Pot and let go to keep warm so anyone can help themselves whenever. I have a loaf of Italian bread for dipping which I may warm/crisp up.

Sometimes Auto correct is bizarre. That sentence should read: "SIL and grandson will be coming so GS can trick or treat here."

I usually make chili for Halloween dinner because I'm too busy running around without my head (how seasonal!) getting things ready. This year I'm ready - and Himself, who lives for this day, is crabbing and moving slowly since he has a backache. He'd better be good to go by 5:30 PM, or the first ten kids at our door will be very, very happy.

Oh, supper is leftovers. Good choices: small portion of chicken and barley stew, a decent portion of spunky black bean chicken, and half of the lobster mac-and-cheese that I made a few days ago. I should make a salad...

We shouldnt do trick or treat but people has been fed with Americans ideas so some do. We instead since we are half Scottish family, we had Samhuinn dinner with lentil soup and rice pudding for dessert. Daughter got to dooking fer apples and treacle scones on a string as games and it was all fun.
