Mom Organization Skills 101

There is no greater reward than being a mother, but believe me, for all those expecting moms out there, you sure do have your work cut out for you in order to earn that reward. It was only when I had my second child that I realized, being prepared for any scenario was better…

October brings a whirl-wind of crisp cool air, leaves, and HALLOWEEN...

Growing up, my family never really made a big deal
over Halloween. Some years we trick-or-treated, some years not. So you
can imagine what a shock it was to buy a house in a neighborhood with
Halloween FEVER! Yes, we live in one of THOSE neighborhoods...every town has one. A SPOOKTACULAR neighborhood where houses are decked out in ghoulish garb, children and adult alike are adorned in ghastily get-ups, and candy flows like milk and honey one night a year!

~Halloween 2009~
It just so happens that we bought a house on the main drag, so our road actually gets closed off for hundreds thousands of people to stroll (or creep) down Halloween night. Year after year we watch our neighbors out-do
each other with magic shows, man-powered floats, and Hitchcock movies
blasted on the sides of houses. A former art professor down the street,
carves masses of the most amazing pumpkins you've ever seen and hangs
them in trees! It's a full-moon affair, you could say.


The candy has become an issue. Last year we gave out 1200 treats! No, that's not a typo. Can you imagine buying enough treasures for 1200 little goblins? We have to buy bigger items so we can give each child ONE, in order to
keep count for the next year! But it's part of the package deal, living
in this neighborhood. We'll just call it an association fee!


We have collected our fair share of lawn ornaments for Halloween, but my
participation lies more in the kitchen. Every year we plan a menu for
the 80+ guests that will attend our party, then proceed to come up a dangerous dungeon full of delectables. Our goal is ALWAYS to create treats that are fun and festive, but that taste GREAT! It's
a horror to bite into a meticulously decorated witch cookie, only to
howl with disappointment over shortening-laden frosting!
PLECK!

So here is the beginning of my trial Halloween recipes. I promise to only include those that were screamingly scrumptious and are likely to end up at our party!

Of the milkshakes, the coffee version was MY favorite. I thought it would be fun to garnish them with bloody lady fingers! Hubby liked the gingersnap best and the kids liked the banana.
