The holiday season provides ample opportunities for socializing amongst family and friends, coworkers, club members, and others and I look forward to such occasions with heady anticipation. I’m usually a homebody, so this time of year is nice to step out and experience the excitement and expectations in the wind up to the big day and New Year beyond. I hum carols to myself as I get ready to attend an event, package goodies to deliver as host gifts, wrap small gifts for friends I won’t see at the end of the month. There is much that is undergoing change at present and just now it feels the time will slow briefly so that we can savor the season, I hope that you all find a little downtime to do just that. Between parties, of course.
Glad am I that this time of year offers such a plentitude of pumpkin tasties! Here is a whole patch of pumpkin desserts from Trader Joe’s. Fulfill all your sweet-tooth cravings by trying one or all. You are sure to find a favorite here.
This is a quick bit of video footage taken by my husband (Redwire), he is very proud of the automated cauldron prop, it was the first mechanical prop I’d asked for and I think he did an amazing job putting it together. This is the walk up to my front door and the entrance to our “Shoppe”. The music overlay is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, episode “Hush” a great piece of music called “Golf Claps” by Christophe Beck.
Once again I update you on the various scrumptious offerings in pumpkin flavored treats to be had at your local Trader Joe’s. Already gone through the seeds you roasted in October? These bags of Pumpkin Seeds will satisfy that crunch that ice cream and pie can’t meet. Healthful and delicious and great when watching football. Good at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. An all-arounder that is too yummy to pass up! I’ve got mine.
The packaging for this trendy extra large ice cube silicone mold by Fred claims “…nothing’s cooler than a crypt, icier than a lifeless stare, colder than fate.”. While that may or may not be true this 3D ice mold certainly produces an ice “cube” able to sufficiently chill a beverage without attendant watering down of drinks. Using this mold to follow the current trend in icing drinks is fun and would be a great addition to the Halloween themed bar, but comes at a cost as each lists for $10.00 on the Sur La Table website. So you’d need to purchase multiples to fill the needs for a party. I ordered four and the results are great, easy to use and look amazing. Lots of fun.
