What's for Dinner on Halloween Night?

We'll be busy with trick or treating as our grandson is coming here with his parents and we'll be greeting and feeding all the little ones that wander by.

We have take-out pizza on the menu for tonight.

Not sure yet. I have to put up the inflatables and the yard lights and we will be giving out candy from 6-8 tonight. Maybe just soup, salad, and sandwiches or what ever is in the fridge.

Haven't thought about dinner yet. How I envy all of you with the little trick or treaters....I used to just love having them come to the door. When I moved into this over 50 gated community, that was the end of that. It's times like this I really miss a "normal" neighborhood.
Enjoy !!

left overs! I'm not cooking at all today since we spent 20 hours traveling to football games and band competitions yesterday. Trick or treat is 6pm to 8pm. Not sure how many we'll get since the past 3 years we haven't been home.

Halloween when my daughter had braces was a pretty good time for me.

We are having pork chops, sweet potatoes, and corn on the cob.

Well, I don't get to torture my owns kids, so I do my best torturing my sisters and brother, buying noisy toys for their kids.

Off to do hand outs at work...I have a chuck steak slow cooking, it'll be ready to shred when I get home.

I'm about to make chicken fried steak out of that mystery King steak I have. We'll have boiled potatoes and salad with that. I'm still deciding if I want to make a plain garlic vinaigrette or a Ranch dressing.

The chicken fried steak was yummy. How is it different from schnitzel?

The organic potatoes with sour cream and chives were good and the salad was yummy. I decided on the garlic vinaigrette. It's cold outside, so I didn't want to go cut the scallions and parsley. The chives were cut yesterday when I was make a fake Boursin for the Halloween party I went to.

Isn't schnitzel generally made with veal, pounded very thin? It has a different gravy, too, I think. I've never had it.

I think it was originally made with veal. It is often made with pork and sometimes chicken. I have never actually heard of it being made with beef.
