The All Hallows Eve came with a cool morning and a brilliant sunrise and we are taking it easy and enjoying the day preparing for ghosts and goblins.  We set out the pumpkin on a small table in the front yard where it gets a ghouly sheen from the flood light that is shining on our flag from dusk to dawn.

We began our day by having Pumpkin Waffles out in the summer kitchen.  I made the batter from a basic recipe with the most common ingredients such as three (3) eggs, milk, canola oil, and all kinds of sugars.  I used a tsp baking powder and half a tsp of baking soda to get a rise out of the waffles.

The aromatic fun is mixing the pumpkin spices of cinnamon, ground ginger, all spice, and nutmeg along with a tad of salt.

Finally, I used one (1) cup of store bought, canned, pumpkin.  Mix it all together and make waffles or pancakes.  We drizzled maple syrup over the waffles.  Yum!  Yum!  Our treat.

Our treat is also to enjoy the Cassia that is in full bloom along the fence on the Back Forty.  It seems that one day it was only greenery and then it exploded in sunny yellows.  The fall is here.

Actually, we have not had any tricksters visiting us for the last ten years.  The street have been empty and there have been no signs of children anxiously running around knocking on doors and asking for treats.  I miss them.

Schools and churches are organizing Halloween Events for the children to keep them off the street and away from harm's way.  Parents in communities are also having treat and trunk parties. All this in an effort to keep the goblins safe.

Have a Safe and Fun Halloween
Look out for the Goblins and treat them well
