Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween

Trick or Treat.

Smell my feet.

Do you have anything good to eat?

Odd that I would mention the feet part. I spent a couple of hours cleaning this afternoon, and I was pretty sure the smell I was trying to eradicate was dirty feet. On the other hand it might have been pheasant guts. I was almost ready to head to the basement to see if the last set of hunters left one of their friends behind down there. Yikes must be the Halloween spirit that has me thinking this way.

I should have done the cleaning this morning, but I started a batch of bread when I was eating breakfast, and that pretty well kept me tied to the house until noon. I was going to make lasagna for supper, but opted for spaghetti instead. At any rate, I made some bread sticks to go along with it. As long as I had the oven hot, I took the botched bread from last Friday, and cubed it to make up some croutons. I didn’t follow any special recipe just coated them with some oil and sprinkled some garlic salt on them and shook them all up in a bowl then put them on a pan and baked them a few minutes. James thinks they are edible so I guess it works for me.

Before I add the pictures to show you what I was talking about above, I will let you know a couple of up coming items. I am not sure how much I will be writing in November. I will try to get on the blog and site read your posts, and hit “like” for those I enjoy, just not sure how much writing I will do. I also have two sermons coming up on Nov. 10 and Nov. 17. Those are the two big, “check her out” days. There is one other person preaching the week after me and then the church will meet to decide what they want to do. Yikes.

The other major thing is that I joined up for the write a novel in November thing. It was posted in the area where you find the writing and photo challenges. Sadly, I don’t expect myself to finish, but maybe if I have that attitude, I will try to prove myself wrong. I am kind of weird like that. Don’t ever tell me that I CAN’T do something. The other thing that might happen is that writing could breed more writing. Sometimes I have to hold myself back from writing three or four blog posts in the same day. I guess it will be what it will be. In the meantime, I hope all of you had a great Halloween and tomorrow have a great All Saints Day.

I love using glass jars for storing my staples for cooking and baking.

Doughy bread used to make croutons. I finally realized I should pour the oil on both sides before I cubed it.
