The Gleeful Gourmand: Halloween Fun!

Halloween Fun!

We had a great Halloween last night. My parents came over, and my Mom brought her delicious chili, and I made cornbread in my brand-new 8-inch cast iron skillet (post on cast-iron skillets and other cooking tools to come!), Ghostly Lemon Cake Pops that were a little tough to make (some of them died a second time while being covered in white chocolate), but ultimately turned out great, and one pumpkin pie I cannot post a picture of because it's just too sad.

Let's just say it was a pumpkin pie failure as far as prettiness, and um, because of burnt edges. Suffice to say, I ran out of time yesterday and in my haste I accidentally made enough for two pies, and filled the one I had too full. It still tasted good, but it looked like a hot pumpkin pie mess.

Liam hauled in enough candy to feed a small army, and despite the rain, a good time was had by all!

Love the cake pops! And I have a cast-iron skillet that I much under-appreciate, so I am excited about the whole post about cast iron!
