I thought it would be fun to do a recap of all the Halloween recipes that have been up on Feed Your Skull this month and just a few from the archives.

- Jeremy and I have rotated making morning smoothies—best idea ever.
2. I mapped out November’s editorial schedule. I barely recognize myself 😉
3. I finally remembered to soak beans for cooking before going to bed Monday night and we once again have beans in the freezer! Black, kidney, garbanzo, and pinto.
4. Even though I was recovering from my cold this week, I made sure to get out for about half the walks I normally do. I’m starting to see more frost in the morning and a huge color change in the surrounding foliage.
5. I made some ‘fries’ (similar to this method) using a butternut squash we picked up from J’s co-worker and LOVED the resulting artwork. I meant to save it and attach it to a canvas with gel medium but then ended up tossing it before company arrived.
6. We had friends over and carved pumpkins last night! Jeremy and I haven’t carved pumpkins since 2006? Crazy! It was such a great time. Jeremy made crock pot chili with secret ingredients peanut butter and ginger and I made cornbread.
7. We finally caught up on Revenge, a show we love to love and hate.
8. It was my Grandma’s birthday on Thursday! This gorgeous woman makes her own nut milks every week, walks twice a day with Gramps and loves my oranges with cinnamon snack. For awhile she was eating them every day – I wonder if she still does this? Happy Birthday Grandma!
9. I moved my jewelry making from the living room floor into my office. It had been there for a few weeks. It feels much more organized now and on a table and out of the way.
10. And on a sad note, I lost someone from the neighborhood clan I grew up with this week. She was in her early 20s and I just can’t believe she is gone. We’ve known each other for so much of our lives. I remember when they moved in next door and I became baby-sitter for her and her siblings. We always had such a great time playing with their pets and watching Doug or Rugrats. Addiction is a heady thing and there are so many misconceptions that go with it. I think the most important thing is to not let it define those we love—they are people—fellow human beings—so much more than a societal stigma.
I love you all and hope you have a great week ahead. xoxo
