As you can see, I’m still pumpkin crazy here! This time around I made some moist pumpkin muffin tops with chocolate chips added in.
I can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner. Where is this year going so fast?! This weekend I’ve gotta spend some time preparing for Trick or Treat night…not that I know when it is or anything.
Our neighborhood is so screwy when it comes to Trick or Treat. We don’t have kids so I never know when it’s going to be and our borough always schedules it days before Halloween. I hate that!
It always comes as a surprise to us so I’ve gotta make sure I get candy stocked this weekend. Halloween is next Sunday but I wouldn’t be surprised if Trick or Treat for us is Wednesday or Thursday, grrr! That’s no fun at all to me! It should be at least the day before if not on Halloween, that’s just my two cents though.
