A Wholesome Halloween

Once upon a time, the freaks didn't come out at night. They didn't come out at all. Knee socks, loafers and a smartly carved jack-o-lantern did the trick when it came to treating. Boo to that.

Now head out there and put some happy - or haggard - into someone's Halloween!

Molday Monday Night

In the spirit of All Hallow's Eve, I couldn't resist these gag-inducing individual servings of horror. What's in the genetic make up of these Knox-congealed salads? And what in the hell is the grody garnish? Looks like a dessert only the Crypt Keeper would love...

Freak Show

I'm a freak magnent. Every so [more] often [than not] I find an 'Odd Todd' in my path, wanting to make friends.

Over the past several weeks, I've had a bit of a sideshow when it comes to side items. There is no Mother Teresa in a tortilla, but have a look-see:

[peace, love - and onion rings from ihop]

[bowlegged - or siamese - carrots. straight from the celophane]

What odd edibles have you seen - or tasted?!

Moldy Monday Night

This mold? Looks like it just came up - not like it's about to be sliced, served and headed down the hatch. What makes this bold mold blush?!

Sugar & Spice & Homer Price

This is one of my favorite books:

This is one of my favorite fall comfort foods [served warm & wrapped at our favorite pumpkin patch]:

I wish I had a donut machine that would produce pumpkin donuts like these in Homer Price time. Since I don[u]'t, here's the recipe that helps make treats like these a reality in my family. Sucks to be  you, Krispy Kreme!

Pumpkin Donuts
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup buttermilk
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Sugar for coating

Beat eggs and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Add the oil, pumpkin and buttermilk to the egg & sugar mixture. Mix dry ingredients together and add to the main mixture.
Chill for 1 hour. Turn out onto a floured board and roll to ½ inch thickness.
Cut shapes with a donut cutter. Deep fry until golden brown on one side.
Turn over [that's what she said]. Fry until the other side is also golden brown. Strain well and roll in sugar to serve.

Moldy Monday.


I think the term, "we go together like peas & carrots" is charming. But peas, carrots, corn, Knox and green onion?! Notsomuch.
