HALLOWEEN

October 31, 2014

Part of this year’s halloween activity included our church’s middle school fellowship’s costume party. I am a little bragging about my (free) costume idea for David. He’s Forrest Gump while he was running across America. I am Charles Barkley. Two pop cultural references certainly lost on 13 year olds.

A few years ago I thought I did not like halloween because there really is not much likable about halloween as celebrated by college students. Then we left college and were again surrounded by the innocent costumes and passing out candy in the neighborhood. And that made things good again for me and October 31st. Welcome back, halloween.

For the nights when the thought of having to pull something together for dinner is soul-crushingly debilitating.

Or the nights when you need to not need to go to the grocery store.

Or the nights when a dinner for everyone must cost less than $9.

We make baked ravioli.
