What Is For Dinner Halloween Night?

Didn't get dinner last night, cancelled the kids as I felt like heck.
Tonight, we'll see but I'm thinking although it's not cold or blustery or anything fun like that, I may still have to do a big pot of chili. I'll do it Cincinnati style with the cheese and onions on top, garlic bread for the DH and a salad for the DW.

So, wutterya making yourselves for this very spooky night?

On a typical Halloween night we have a steady parade of about 100 or so "spooks" coming to our door. I usually pick up something "pre-made" on the way home. We eat late, after we close down the treat station.

DH has class tonight so he won't be going trick or treating with us. I think I'll call him and see if he wants to meet at a pizza place and then he can go to school and after our little one and I will go trick or treating.

Our trick or treat night was on Saturday, so we won't be having kids at the door tonight. Kim got a package of smoked pork butt out of the freezer, and we'll be having sandwiches from that.
I haven't personally cooked anything for several days, and feel like I should fix something to go with the sandwiches...maybe something will come to me.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Husband & I have had the same Halloween dinner tradition for many many years now - takeout pizza, an assortment of donuts, & apple cider. This way we can just lounge around & enjoy all the old horror flicks on tv without having to mess around in the kitchen. Tonight I'll be popping out for the pizza, while husband will bring home the donuts on his way home from work, since we don't have any donut shops in town.

Even tho I did buy a bag of candy (which husband has already looted - lol!), in the 10 years we've been here we've only gotten ONE trick-or-treater. Let's face it, no one is going to venture down a dark 1/2-mile dirt/gravel road up a dark dirt/gravel pine-lined drive to a house filled with howling hounds from h*ll just to get a piece of candy - lol!!

I will carve a pumpkin today though - that's tradition too. However, even though I have more cartons of Halloween decorations than I do for Xmas, I didn't haul them out this year. My jack-o-lantern will just have to do.

My parents in NY, however, usually get a good showing of trick-or-treaters, being that they live on "Cemetery Lane", which boasts a large old faimly cemetery on it.

happy anniversary yt!

tonight, we dine on candy!!!! bwa-hahahahaaaa

i've been feeding the local little bastids their blood-candy on haloween for many years, so my house doesn't get egged (it's the way to teach your children the finer points of extortion! sort of a "how-to" ).

this year, we are taking my son around to get some of it back.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.
