It’s October! Already! “Time don’t fly, it bounds and leaps,” as John Prine crooned.
Ain’t that the truth. But! October is a good month. Fall is in the air, apple season is on, pumpkin spice is everywhere… to the chagrin of pumpkin-spice haters ?
Aaand…you’re finally allowed to put up Halloween decorations! Who am I kidding, my neighbors have put up theirs weeks ago! We have very competitive neighbors, obviously.
I sorta want something a little different this year. I usually put up what I consider typical decorations. Like this.
This year I’m thinking dark… like moody… and dark… like black and purple and blood-red and disturbing… like dark ?
IDK. I’m still deciding… Let me know what you guys are doing for Halloween this year.
From Last Week’s Fiesta
“OMG! Did you say Cajun Lasagna? Anything Cajun, count me in.” —- Jhuls
“This Cajun Lasagna sounds like a fantastic recipe. I’m planning to make this next time the husband asks for a lasagna. Imagine his surprise!” — Angie
“I am into cream cheese spreads lately and this looks like something I know I’d love.” — Jhuls
“This does sound very appetizing. Who can resist cream cheese, seriously.” —- Angie
“As soon as I read the words “chewy” and “cookies” I immediately started paying attention. Then I read “toffee” and “apples” and now I’m completely captivated. These are the perfect Fall cookies!” — Angie
“For the uninitiated, karela (bitter melons or bitter gourds) is an acquired taste. This fabulous recipe, however, makes this nutritious vegetable very appealing.” — Angie

Wow! Number 400! That’s amazing, I still remember when this was just an idea you had! It’s lovely to see the post arriving every week still, I hope you’re all well and safe xx
And here’s to 400 more! No, seriously at some point I’d probably stop. I just don’t know when or how. This thing has taken a life of its own, lol. But thanks for remembering, Elaine. And it’s great to see your comment XOXO
Thanks so much for including the Rosemary-Garlic Cream Cheese Spread in your features this week! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
It sounds very appetizing, Nancy. I love cream cheese.

That bitter gourd recipe you featured this week looks awesome! I’ve cooked that vegetable on occasion – it needs items that work well with it to insure its tastiness! I’ll try this one.
Doesn’t it?! When I saw it, I was like… now that’s a bitter gourd dish I might actually like and enjoy. Also, Zeba grew the vegetable herself. How fun is that!

Definitely ready for some more fall like weather around here! Thanks for hosting us once again. I brought by some Chicken Tortas this week. 🙂
Me, too, I’m so ready for the cool weather. It’s been such a hot summer. Chicken Tortas sound delish! Thanks, CJ!
I truly love popping in here for the party. I always find such inspiring ideas and recipes. Thank you for hosting. This week I brought APPLE PIE IN A BAG, AVOCADO PEACH SALAD & APPLE SALAD with LEMON HONEY VINAIGRETTE. I hope you have a FANTASTIC week.
They sound fantastic, Tamy. Thanks for sharing!

Happy FF#400, Angie. If I can remember it correctly, it was Selma who invited me to join. Oh I miss her! Take care, Angie. I hope you are having a great weekend!
Aaw… Selma was such a great blogger friend, wasn’t she? I miss her presence, too! ?

Well done! Number 400… That’s amazing. Thank you so much for all your hard work in hosting and for sharing so much blog-love xxx
And thank you too for featuring my toffee-apple cookies. ??
Honestly, I didn’t think I or we would last this long! You’re right, it’s pretty amazing when you think about it.
Your Toffee Apple Cookies sound perfect for fall!
Happy Fiesta Friday nr 400! Most impressive! Love the features and I especially love the sound of Cajun Lasagna!
Hard to believe, isn’t it? We’ve been partying for this long ? Same here, I love the sound of that Cajun Lasagna, too. Great seeing your comment here, Petra XOXO

I could have sworn I wrote a comment over the weekend but it’s not here 🙁 Thank you for featuring that unusual Karela recipe. It definitely is an acquired taste but once you try it you will be making it again, especially when those babies are in season! Congrats on the milestone, always enjoy partying with this fab group.<3
I don’t know what’s going on! I may need to update some of my plugins. So little time these days to care for the blog, sigh… But it hasn’t stopped us from partying once a week, lol. The Karela recipe sounds so interesting, Zeba. I will definitely try it!
