Rev Girls Friday Five

1. How did you celebrate this time of year when you were a child? We wore costumes and mom drove us around a 8-mile loop of relatives. They were spread out in the community, but we only went trick-or-treating to people we knew.

2. Do you and/or your family “celebrate” Halloween? Why or why not? And if you do, has it changed from what you used to do? The last few years we have taken CWGIII to the church's Trunk-Or-Treat event. He gets plenty of candy and fun. And it's not the headache of going door-to-door.

2. Candy apples: Do you prefer red cinnamon or caramel covered? Or something else?Caramel apples, definitely.

3. Pumpkins: Do you make Jack O’ Lanterns? Any ideas of what else to do with them?So far we have carved one every year. I'm kind of late with it this year. Just not into it. I let him paint faces on small punkins when he was younger, because he wanted to do it himself, and he couldn't use a knife yet.

4. Do you decorate your home for fall or Halloween? If so, what do you do? Bonus points for pictures. Nothing decorated whatsoever this year. Going to my baby sis' house Sat. night for a party.

5. Do you like pretending to be something different? Does a costume bring our an alternate personality? I have enough alternates without the costumes, thank you. LOLOLOL.

Bonus: Share your favorite recipe for an autumn food, particularly apple or pumpkin ones. I like pumpkin bread and apple crisp. Don't know how to make either. Someone help me out.. :(

Apple crisp is very easy. Check out a Betty Crocker recipe. Or you can go really fast. My mother makes a recipe where you used can pie filling. You top it with streusel made from a yellow Jiffy cake mix, chopped pecans and melted butter. Put the topping on the filling and bake till golden. It's a little different but good.

8 miles that must have covered at least 20 people.

So what personality are you now?

And right now. I'm buzzing on caffeine and pretty hyper, a tad irritated, but glad it's the weekend and my toes are cold. So how are you???

lots of recipes floating around!

Sista Cala said...

You missed Granny and Grand-daddy Campbell, but maybe you were too young to remember visiting w/them.

Cindy,

LOVE your "other baby!" I have always had a special affection for Cocker Spaniels!

As to the apple crisp...this is my recipe:

Get the car keys,
Drive to the grocery store (Lunds or Byerly's will do)
Go to the Deli/Bakery section
Pick up APPLE CRISP
Make my purchase
Drive home and peel an apple
Leave a peeling or two on the counter and spritz my face with a little flour as evidence of my hard work!!!!!

Warm the apple crisp in the oven at low heat.....

Serve to family!!!!

Is that cheating???

Works for me!

C. H. Green said...

LOL...actually I do that with other things sometimes. We don't have Lunds or Byerly's...maybe Kroger will do. LOLOLOL....

I got to get my candy from the people in the apts. we lived in.
I do a little fall decorating,--fall colors, leaves, apples and etc.
Like what Diane said. Sort of like my quickly made homemade chicken and noodles.---But all from the store, boil with really good yellow food coloring.
Then hubby thinks I bought fresh farm eggs and rolled out the noodles.LOL
