Episode 71 - This is Halloween!

Share it Please
I adore Halloween.  A. Dore.  Cute costumes, jack-o-lanterns, little individually wrapped Reese's Cups, it's pretty much impossible not to have fun with a holiday like that!  We carved our pumpkins yesterday afternoon, and by that I mean Dawson carves the pumpkins while I "instruct".  It's a great system, really.

That pumpkin is a scaredy cat.

While Dawson carved I made myself useful and whipped these up.  Cheaper than Starbucks!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

1 mug full of milk warmed in the microwave (about 2 1/2 minutes)
1 tsp instant coffee mix
2 tsp brown sugar (or more if you like it sweet)
1 pinch cinnamon
1 dash of each ginger, nutmeg and cloves

Mix in a mug and enjoy!  Make one for someone cute so you can drink them while cuddling in front of the fire. If you can make espresso, by all means, use that instead of the instant coffee.  We're not fancy.

Ps.  Dawson is a pretty great pumpkin carver.  These were his creations this year!

Pure Evil!

In case you're dying to know what our costumes were, I was a lion!  Grrrrr!

Friendly lion.
Dawson was an old prospector, complete with a red-onesie with a butt-flap!
We look like ketchup and mustard...
