A few Halloween traditions, November dates of note and Kindness Calendar, and recipe for Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.
That pumpkin chiffon pie sounds glorious, Kate! In my English childhood, Halloween was trumped by Guy Fawkes Day (November 5), although I do remember a couple of fun Halloween parties, and nearly drowning myself bobbing for apples!
Thank you. Made your pumpkin pie with coconut milk this week and it was superb.
I was taking it to a non vegetarian dinner so I got to use real eggs!! Wow.
I have spent this cold day in my flannel nightgown and bathrobe. It has been a non public day, hair not combed. I remembered I might get trick or treaters at dark so I started to jump up and dress. But I decided this can be my costume!!! I don't have to dress. Trying to decide my character. 💕
I spent so many years in the classroom dreading the chaotic Halloween parties and the "sugar highs" of the day after! I don't think I had the time or took the time to think about other Halloween traditions and their significance. Thank you, Kate, for this post today and all the good reminders🧡
Happy Halloween, Kate! Thank you for including me in your beautiful post ✨🧡
We grew up celebrating Guy Fawkes Night which was always meant Parkin and treacle toffee. Even now they both make me think of the beginning of winter and bonfires.
Kate, do any of your books have your mincemeat filling? I can look in the books tomorrow, but I'm sitting in front of my computer tonight. *grin*
I prefer Samhain. I guess all my Celtic DNA speaks the loudest. Blessed Samhain!
I wish I had emoji's here. (hugs)
I'm ok with that! I'm having such a hard time finding Nonsuch Mincemeat and I'd really like to break free and make my own. Thank you!
I’m gonna need more on that Betty Crocker kids’ cookbook. How did I miss this growing up??
