I love Halloween. I know that is probably not politically correct... ESPECIALLY when you are a Preschool Teacher in a Christian school. But I do.
Not the Halloween that you see in the new gothic, bloody, severed head, corpse shops that are popping up all over America.
I love the Halloween that I remember as a kid growing up in small town America. A time when we could enter our neighbor's haunted house without fear, a time when we could eat homemade popcorn balls without the fear of a razor being tucked inside, a time where we dressed up in homemade costumes that our mother labored over for hours. A kinder, innocent time in rural Pennsylvania. Sigh.
I guess I'll close this blog with a recipe that invokes many wonderful Autumn memories for me. Enjoy.
