Happy Halloween!



Happy Halloween! Mother Nature decided to get into the Halloween spirit a little early this year and spook all my kids. Everybody duck and cover! Earthquake! It felt like was someone shoved me from behind. We found out on the news it was a 5.6 quake located in the Bay Area. No big deal, right? Wrong! My niece and two littlest sous chefs were a little freaked out. They didn't even want to watch, It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Rich pointed out they probably won't want to watch, since they haven't ever felt an earthquake before.

Before the shake 'n bake, we had a great dinner. Turkey, stuffing, and roasted apple, pear, and cranberry sauce. I really need to find a new name for that sauce, it's a mouthful. Get it, mouthful? Ugh, okay it's clumsy, unyielding, awkward anything but mouthful. While the dinner was in the oven, we carved pumpkins. Pumpkin guts, witches hair, and seeds everywhere. Speaking of being scared, no one likes to start cutting their pumpkins. Evil Chef Mom has to do it, but they get even more scared because I bust out my Global Knives. My kids are scared of those knives. Even my sister, Robin, doesn't like them. That adds to the Halloween spirit. Sharp, scary knives, spider webs, jack o' lanterns, and Earthquakes! Happy Halloween, everybody!
