witch fingers... yikes!

Tonight my friend Ashlee Jean came over and got me to help her make a Halloween treat for her to take to work tomorrow.  We decided to make witch fingers.  They taste similar to a sugar cookie or a tea cake but they have almond extract in them.  yum!

here's our creations...
fingers ready to bake... creepy!

baked... ready to serve.

grab a band-aid, our witch started bleeding!

peas and curry

Sometimes I just need some spice in my mouth... so that's when I decided to smell up David's house with the flavorful aroma of curry. I found a recipe for chickpea curry a long time ago that I love and decided to pull it out of the archives and make it happen.... here's what went down.

sauteed onions.


chickpeas... and yes, Bush's contributed to my Indian recipe!!!

rice, more spice, a totally 80's plate, and a fork.

Indian food makes you drink plenty of water... so when dehydrated, eat more curry!!!

yay smoothies!!

I have so much to blog about right now but right now but I don't want to just give it all away at once... it leaves no room for the times when I'm feeling not so creatively juicy. Soooo I'm going with my latest weekend passion. Strawberry-banana smoothies. Yes, a little trite in the realm of smoothies but I have perfected smoothie making. Check this out...

If you use frozen strawberries in lieu of ice, it makes your smoothie have much more flavor and you don't have to add as much sugar... or any, really. But hello? Why would you not put sugar in it? Here's the rest of my most recent smoothie experience...

fruit in... just add a little sugar, a little dairy and...

off we go!!!
it looks kinda gross... just bear with me.

ok much better.

I actually made a movie with David and John about smoothies this past weekend talking about things we like. Maybe I will blog about it. Two smoothie blogs in a row?? That may just be too sweet.

She's in the middle outdoing us all in her completely homemade costume. My sister-in-law as Sarah Palin complete with Alaskan accent and all... and I'm the mime!
