Happy Halloween... tacky or tasteful....

Happy Halloween to everyone... be it tasteful or tacky, have lots of spookable fun! This year we're having a tacky one as I hit the pound shop this afternoon and stocked up on a whole load of tat! The pics are from the last couple of years... No halloween food for us this year, the boys have had parties to attend... Small was too scared to stay so came home with me, he's had some bread, a carrot, and an awful lot of sweets for his dinner... At least I'm honest!

I saw a really cool recipe for pina ghouladas on the Martha Stewart website... Infact I've spent way too long trawling Martha's website.

Rescue Puppies... and some Skate Wings


The newest member of our family has arrived. She's gorgeous, 7 weeks old, very laid back, a tiny little bit stubborn, slept right through the night without a peep last night (yippeeee!). Seems to hit the paper more than the floor. Her mum is a rescue Tibetan Spaniel, father unknown. She is very, very much loved.

On the food front I cooked some Skate Wings last week. First I put some cornmeal on a plate and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Dipped the skate wings in the cornmeal, both sides and then fried in oil and butter for 4 minutes on each side. Served with sliced potatoes, onions, garlic and green pepper that was cooked in olive oil in the oven for about 45 minutes. Absolutely delicious!
