Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat!!

Can you guess what I am?!

Yep, I’m a runner. What? I needed to pull together a costume in a day and my whole closet is full of running gear – what’s a girl to do? Plus, it was a good excuse to wear my Miami 70.3 medal just one last time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had actually forgot Halloween was tonight when I called Mary yesterday asking if she was free to hang out today. “Tomorrow’s Halloween” “Oh yeah…” She told me her parents’ neighborhood does a little block party for the trick or treaters and invited me along.

My future dream house will one day be in a neighborhood full of kids. I grew up in a kid-friendly neighborhood and every Halloween we had trick-or-treaters by the bucket full (and my friends and I were never short of houses to trick or treat at). There aren’t any kids where Derek and I are now, so we don’t have any trick-or-treaters to buy candy or answer the door for. One day we’ll have that dream house, but until then it’s fun to visit other neighborhoods to help hand out candy to their trick-or-treaters.

The neighbors had some snacks set out and I nibbled on pigs-in-a-blanket and sipped on a pumpkinhead beer (I also brought hummus and pita chips to share).

I also had one of Mary’s amazing marshmallow and peanut butter m&m popcorns balls (NEED the recipe for these – so. good.)

We gave some candy away, admired the ADORABLE costumes (my favorite was a two-year old pink little pig who was too cute for words), and eventually ordered pizza for dinner.

I had a slice of each (thai chicken + steak and gorgonzola)

Considering it’s a school night, I couldn’t believe how late some of the trick-or-treaters were staying out – 9:00pm? I was exhausted for them. How late do you usually have trick-or-treaters at your house? Do they go until 9:00 too?

Alright, I’m ready for bed.

Good night!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

October 31, 2012

I tried something a little different for lunch today. Yes, Pinterest has gotten to me again and the allure of a cauliflower pizza crust was rather intriguing. I mean, why not give it a shot? I followed the recipe I had pinned from HERE. It was really simple – grate the cauliflower, cook it, mix more ยป

Happy Halloween!! Who dressed up for work this morning? I tried to get a photo of Maddie in her adorable lady bug costume, but she was NOT having it. “Mom, Iz ready to go in now” And this is what I got with the collar. Oh well. To be fair I did take her away more ยป
