I hope everyone is enjoying the “holiday” and that you’re doing a little something to participate in Monday’s candyfest.
Or maybe you did something to celebrate over the weekend.
Skylar has a Halloween party at her school on Monday and then we have trick-or-treating in the evening. I am sure the little Princess will be wired but tired when it’s all over, but for now, she’s really excited to get into that Princess costume. And has requested pink eyeshadow and glitter, too. She’s really looking forward to getting all
dolled up Princess’ed up.
Over the weekend we enjoyed the sunny skies and amazing weather. Mid 70s on Saturday and low 80s on Sunday; unseasonably warm even for San Diego, but I am not complaining. Growing up in Minnesota, I am all too familiar with Halloween Blizzards where I didn’t even get to trick or treat, or had to wear a huge down coat over my costume.
We went to a local park as a family and met up with some friends and their kids on Saturday. It was great being outside in the fresh air and chatting and watching the kids play.
I also took my scuzzy ride through the car wash.
And I spent time in the kitchen working on a recipe. It involved my new donut pan.
I finally broke it in.
And then I made a glaze that I wanted to bathe in. Pictures and recipe someday soon.
In the meantime, there’s Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies to enjoy.
For anyone who has leftover candy corn or isn’t quite sure what to do with it other than just eating it as is, I recommend making homemade Butterfinger Bars with it.
3 ingredients + 3 minutes = Butterfingers at home and they taste freakishly close to the real thing

1. What are you doing for Halloween? Did you do anything Halloween related over the weekend? Are you going out tonight or staying home and passing out candy?
2. Best thing you ate or did over the weekend?
Being with my family was the best thing.
And these were the best food. Tied with the donuts I made.
