I’m still in the mood for Halloween here, people!
But everywhere I go, I’m seeing signs that everyone is already on board the Thanksgiving train.
Yesterday I went to the stores to find some Halloween decorations for my front yard and the selections were pitiful. All the shelves are now stocked with Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff!
I don’t think I’m ready for turkeys and reindeer yet!
There’s still this Halloween party to attend to. Not to attend, mind you, but to attend to. It’s the daughter’s annual Trick-or-Treat Day with her friends. And unless you’re a chaperone, you’re not invited. And I’m not.
I am, however, required to contribute some treats.
Oh, the things you do for your kids!
Anyway, consequently, my dining table still looks like this. Since I’m still trying to figure out what to send to the party.
Thanksgiving tablescape will have to wait.
I don’t mind, actually. I kinda like this “Halloween theme”. You know, the-scarily-messy theme.
Hey, it’s Halloween, you wanna see something scary, don’t you? Here, take a look at my messy dining table! There! Scared enough?! LOL!
Quinoa and Brown Rice Baked Apples from Christina Nifong
“What a beautiful way to use apples this fall. The fresh herbs, the walnut and of course the quinoa and brown rice make this a completely delicious meal!” — Zeba
“I have seen a lot of baked apple recipes, but Christina’s version had me drooling. They look so good and such a unique way to enjoy baked apples.” — Jhuls
Brown Sugar and Spice Shortbread from Cooking Is My Sport
“Whether they are cookies, breads, biscuits or anything savory, Jess makes them all so perfectly beautiful (of course, delicious, too). These shortbread cookies made me think why I haven’t started making my own. Absolutely fantastic!” — Jhuls
Tomato Basil Burrata Toast from Cooking with a Wallflower
“I could have this breakfast, lunch and dinner and maybe a snack in between 🙂 Yummy…love burrata and those tomatoes must bring such a freshness to this meal” — Zeba
Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkin Pot Pie from Looney for Food
“Well now I’m forced to make this for the daughter. First of all, she LOVES pot pies! And these are so adorable! She won’t be able to resist these. Heck, I myself might not be able to resist them!” — Angie

Hi Angie! Happy Fiesta Friday!? It’s so good to finally be back at your fiesta!✨
Oh, yay!! It’s so good to have you back at the fiesta! And I think congratulations are in order, now that we’ve found out the reason why you’ve been absent all this time! Such exciting, wonderful news, Ai!
Can you not send them all?? They all look good and scary!? Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie and thanks for the party as always!?
I can do that! I’ll just make everything and send them all! That’ll make those kids so scared, since I’m thinking of making something healthy, haha…
Ohhh! Healthy sounds scarier than those horror movies being shown on TV during Halloween!?
Thanks for featuring my pot pie! I hope you and your daughter like it. Let me know how they turn out if you make them! Have a great weekend
Patrick, every party I go to that pot pie is calling my name! I would love to see it on a party on my blog!!
Sounds good! I’ll party with you anytime
You’re welcome and I will! Happy Friday, Patrick!
Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend! Everywhere I go that pot pie makes me want some!
Happy Friday, Marilyn! Same here with the pot pie! ?
Hi Angie! I like your messy halloweeny table! I can’t think beyond halloween either, much too early for all the other stuff. Have a good weekend:)
You know who else likes it? The hubster! He actually said it looks cool ?Halloween is big in my neighborhood; we easily get around 100 kids every year. Tiring for me, but fun for the kids, and that’s all that matters ?
My kids used to like it more than Christmas!
My son likes Spiders..I am sure he will be excited to see your Halloween table..Happy Friday Fiesta
Oh how cute! Most kids freak out when they see spiders ? Happy FF, Lathi!
Hi, I will check in later as I am off to baking a delicious pumpkin layer cake with pears, yum. But I am definitely not in Thanksgiving mood either yet…
Pumpkin cake with pears?! Layered?! That’s too much of a tease, Jenny! ?
Yes, Angie, I invented it myself. Just finished the cake layers, the pears are currently on the stove getting soft with some butter and I am getting hungry…
I’m on my way, Angie! Running a little behind today, thanks to an extensive lunch … Happy Fiesta Friday!
What?! You left lunch just to party with us?! Now that’s true dedication ?No worries, Ginger. Real lunch always trumps virtual lunch ?

Lovely party! There are some really creative recipes.
Thanks! So glad you’re enjoying the party!
Your Halloween ? table looks amazing…. more so because I am terrible at it ? I am saving my energy for thanksgiving since in a moment of love I have already invited the entire family!
I’m pretty sure you’re NOT terrible! But I agree, Thanksgiving remains to be the main event of the season. My house is also usually where Thanksgiving happens. I’m the only one who can cook a turkey well enough for everyone to eat! ?
I love your Halloween table Angie 🙂 the pumpkins look so gorgeous.
Thanks, Trupti! I’m moving on to the front yard now. I need to get it ready for the trick or treaters ?
Your Halloween table looks absolutely amazing! It never used to be very popular here but there is more and more stuff in the shops. Am absolutely looking to do something for the market stall but am sure I won’t have your “scary” touch 🙂 x
I made my own bats out of foam sheets for my front door. Easy and cheap decoration! Maybe you can do the same for your stall. Just an idea ?
Oh! I am not sure I am as handy as you but I will absolutely do something. I have to admit I even wondered if I really have to carve the pumpkin or can I just have it on the stand as decoration, terribly lazy! 🙂
You can definitely do that. Or buy the fake jack o lanterns. That’s what I do, easy peasy! Plus they last a lot longer than carved pumpkins ?
I like your thinking 🙂

Super excited to have my Quinoa and Brown Rice Baked Apples as a featured recipe. Thanks so much! Fall flavors are the best, don’t you think?
I love that recipe! Different from the usual dessert type of baked apples. Nothing wrong with it, of course, but variety is the spice of life, they say ? Yes, I agree Fall flavors are the best! I especially love using apple cider!
