Amuck, Amuck, Amuck

Here at the Garlick Press, we are steeped in great traditions... and Halloween is no exception.  

Halloween sugar cookies are first on the agenda for the day.  The teenager likes to have lots of sprinkles with his frosting.  Evenings are spent watching classic films like Hocus Pocus, "I put a spell on you, and now you're mine." We can probably quote half of that movie.

barfing pumpkin is always a classic jack-o-lantern choice at our house.

Let me hear three cheers for The Saints who are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Halloween night.  

Luscious Halloween stew has been brewing all day filling the house with that rich smell of roasting goodness.  You should taste these freshly baked cheese scones for stew dipping.

Oh no, is that Cat Man Boo and Wanda Witch staring at you.

Wicked Witchie-Poo's best features are her stringy hair and lop-sided sagging chest.  Oh what an absolute riot Jill and I had making her a few years ago.  .

  Every now and then I like to create something new to add to our traditions.  This quilt hangs in the usual quilt spot to hauntingly say Halloween Hellos to all that enter.  

Excuse me...I'm Mr Beer Can Chicken.  I've been smoking on the Cuban (smoker) for dinner tonight on All Hallow's Eve.  Beer can chicken (minus the beer and actually cooked on a Dr. Pepper can with apple juice inside) is so tasty and tender.  Thank you Dean for bringing the Cuban home to expand our Sunday dinner menus so deliciously.  

 Newest tradition this year...our granddaughter Olivia, trick-or-treating as a little green dinosaur.  She is positively the sweetest part of the new Halloween traditions at the Garlick Press.   

HALLOWEEN! At the end of a delightful Halloween weekend a new treat...Creamy Pumpkin Custard Pie.  Will this pie be on the Pie Night Menu this year...stay tuned!
