oooh. I love holidays. today could not have gone ANY better.
Zeb and I went running in the most magnificent weather. I wore my witch socks and he wore his pumpkin costume. We also went trick-or-treating in downtown Perrysburg (a quaint little main street area) with friends. I made sure that zeb got all of the really good candy (chocolate, etc) so that Kent and I could enjoy it all later on.
This evening for dinner I decided to attempt my mom's famous "stew in a pumpkin". I made a delectable beef stew (it really was so good) and then baked it in a real live pumpkin. The pumpkin changes to this cool dark color and adds just a hint of Halloween flavor to dinner. Kent actually likes to scrape pumpkin guts into his dinner- I just enjoy the seeped in flavor.
Somehow I had forgotten about our Toledo halloween tradition of dressing up like burritos for free food. I got a reminder call and with just a few pieces of foil got more free dinner. Kent was pleased with his steak burrito. My chicken burrito is in the fridge for his lunch tomorrow. Our burrito costumes were not nearly as comprehensive this year as last. We each only had a foiled finger burrito instead of full body burritos.
I already can't wait for next year Halloween! I think Zeb will enjoy it next year even more as well. Unfortunately that means we won't get as much of his candy.
