Wife and I usually just don't bother answering the door on Halloween, lol. Bah Humbug!

Dinner is going to be some kind of Cajun or Moroccan style beef served with mashed sweet pots with bacon and sour cream (try it - it's a fantastic combo). Veg will be..err... what ever's in the fridge.

I live too far out in the country to get trick-or-treaters. Oh well. Tonight we’re having Sweet and Sour stir fried pork with veggies, mini-egg rolls, and vegetable Mai Fun.

We had a "Fall Fling" potluck here at work today, so last night I made mostaccioli with meat sauce, peppers, onions and garlic. I put aside some of the sauce, so tonight I'll cook up some more pasta and make a salad for dinner. I expect to run out of candy around 7 p.m., so there will be plenty of time to eat

Do they dress up in costumes? How is it that you have candy to give out and kids come around to collect it, and yet you don't celebrate Halloween?

DH will take our 3-year old out trick-or-treating and I will stay home a give out candy.

Dinner will be a simple homemade minestrone (to which I will add shredded chicken leftover from last night's roast chicken) and some garlic toast for dipping.

Fried chicken from the local grocery, plus a salad. With kids coming and going I wanted finger food.

Expecting lots of ghosts and goblins here. I just love it. Dinner will be lots of appetizer foods and wine. If we are still hungry there is always pizza delivery.
