Hope you’re all enjoying a happy Halloween so far!
We’re gearing up for a serious potluck lunch here at the office — tamales and empanadas are out in full force — so this afternoon should be filled with the sounds of overly-full moans and heavy sighs from people who’ve overindulged in the feast and are no longer as comfortable in their skintight flapper or pimp outfits as they were this morning. Thankfully, yours truly came prepared in a roomy Dynamo jersey and jeans. I plan ahead like that.
To celebrate the day, here’s a great article from one of my favorite websites, Serious Eats:
The great thing about these recipes is that they’re perfect not only for Halloween, but for the rest of the year, too. Hellooooo, spiced pumpkin bisque! So enjoy those autumnal ingredients, crisp spices and yummy root vegetables while the cool weather lasts!
And as one last treat, can you guess the best and worst Halloween candy? Don’t worry if you can’t; MSN is there to be a spoilsport and try to convince you that everyone loves Tootsie Rolls and sticks of gum for Halloween! Don’t fall for it. You’ll be hated almost as much that woman at the end of the cul-de-sac who gives out toothbrushes and can’t figure out why her house always gets egged. Stick with Snickers tonight and you’ll be golden.
