Left-over Candy, A New Month, and Move the Clock!

It's November already!

I hope you had a wonderful and safe Halloween yesterday.  Just as I expected, almost all of the candy I bought is still left in the bowl.  Good thing some of my son's friends were at our house for a while, to eat at least a little of it.

My friend's “Girls Night Out” party was very fun. As you can see by this photo - the food was wonderful too!

So much good food - and even a regurgitating pumpkin!

My contribution was a platter with pita chips and Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Pumpkin Hummus, which I mentioned in a September post.  If you missed the recipe for this the first time around, just click here. The pumpkin flavor seemed appropriate for Halloween, but it is good any time of year!

Don't forget that Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m. this Sunday, November 2nd.  To remember which way to move the hands of the clock, think of the phrase, “Spring Forward, Fall Back!”

I hope the rest of your weekend is safe and happy.

Happy Weekend!

What are your thoughts about the practice of changing our clocks for Daylight Savings?  Good idea or not??

  3. We had tons of kids here, went through more candy than I want to think about. Still, I made sure there were a few extra goodies around the house!
    Your Girls' Night Out party looks like it was a lot of fun. You all wore costumes, right?

    1. Actually, it was more of a birthday celebration for 2 of the guests - so, no costumes :)

  4. Our Halloween was very strange. Usually we get hundreds of trick or treaters - this year we got 12. I think it was the combination of the rain and the sad happenings around our town. Now I have tons of candy and toys left! Oh well.

    1. I wish October had been different for you Lana. I have seen a lot of recipes on other blogs and Pinterest for using up leftover candy though!

  6. Mmm hummus. Love it - and it goes very well on cheese sandwhiches too. One of my guilty pleasures.
    Halloween was a non-event here. Lots of fuss in the shops, which didn't translate to the suburbs.

  7. I know here I show up days later! It seems as if I fall further and further behind. I didn't get anything done yesterday I was in bed with a migraine, something I never get! I know you do and can't imagine getting one of those more than once! Feel much better today and am determined to catch up today!

    1. So sorry about your migraine, Rena ... most likely it was because you have had so much on your plate! Take some time to relax!!!
