I got this idea from this cookbook. It’s not necessarily for Halloween, but hey, skeletons are great for Halloween, right?

I’ve never seen the veggies eaten so fast! :)

Fruit “Pumpkins”, White Chili with Chicken, and Hot Wheat Cornbread=Yum!  Here’s the link to make:
snack-o-lanterns. Here is the recipe for White Chili with Chicken.

Doesn’t get much better than a beautiful fall day at the zoo! I can’t decide which was my favorite between the baby elephant, the giraffes, or the owl. This video is titled “Synchronized Swishing.” The zebras kept swishing their tails in sync. It was so funny! At the very end of the movie, one of the zebras gets off rhythm and you will hear my husband announce a point deduction in their performance:
