Trick Or Treat?



Good Afternoon Darlings,

When I was growing up and lived at home, Halloween was always a lot of fun. Even after I stopped going Trick or Treating, my mum used to put so much effort into the food that she gave out at the door. Rather than giving sweets or chocolate away, she used to make hotdogs for the children and parents who came with them. 
It warmed them up when it was freezing and they were out in the cold dressed as a cat for half the night, and was something a bit different from what they got at every other house.

With that in mind, this is the first year where we're expecting Trick or Treaters. Where we live now, there are quite a few children in the houses that surround us, which is a stark contrast from student-ville where we've been for the past few years!

We obviously weren't going with the boring options then were we?
These are the ideas for this year:


You can find the recipes for all of these by clicking on the 'here' button.
They are all from a lovely site called Spoonful.com, if you like arts and crafts, cute recipes and Disney (!) You'll love it!

Abiento,

Lea
