I don't want to be a fun spoiler, but I really don't like Halloween. I think I mentioned my reasons last year, one of them being the difficulty of making Halloween deco pretty. Anyway it's fun for kids and you don't want to stop that! Have you ever had one of those awkward moments when group of kids knocks on your door and say "trick or treat" when you have no single sweet treat in the house? To avoid this, here are few tips/ideas on how to avoid these unpleasant moments ;-).
1. Treats! Yes, stock up on treats! The best treats are candies and if you feel like making some here is the recipe that I made last year (it's vanilla and black pepper BTW!). Or if you prefer, bake this ghost meringue cake. Autumn butternut squash cupcakes is another alternative if you want something sweet yourself while you wait ;-).2. Decorations, at least at the front of the house. Because you don't want to bother and decorate the whole house! Garlands are grate for this. Here is one for you to try. Just make sure it's all ready before 6pm this Friday!3. Failed to do no. 1 and 2.? Just pretend you are not home and switch the lights off or something. Close the curtains and light the candle, that should be fun!
