HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEN!!!!! 🎃 👻 🎃 🧛♂️ It’s time for another fun list of early bird book releases, and I’m hoping we’ll have some fun scary or cozy halloween mysteries in our midst. Maybe a few sexy paranormals too? Let’s see what we’ve got!! But first…
1.) I watched season 7 of American Horror Story (“Cult”) last week while I was sick, and holy moly that show was crazy. Every single episode, and sometimes so violent and so in your face about it that I had to look away, and questioned my own sanity for watching (as much as I love horror, I’m not into torture flicks, and this had quite a bit of that). Ugh. Still… amazingly crazy story. P.S. The scariest clown I have EVER seen, is in this one. *shudders*
2.) Speaking of the actor “Evan Peters” (he’s the main star in “Cult”) he was also “Jeffrey Dahmer” in another recent series which freaked me out and was so addictive. I’m hearing that will be a popular Halloween costume this year, so some schools have altogether banned the kids from dressing up for Halloween today at school.
3.) I tasted a really yummy pre-made lasagna yesterday!! It’s a “Rana” beef and short rib lasagna (at first I thought it would have BBQ sauce or something in it – I wasn’t sure I was in the mood for a weird lasagna) but nope. It’s Italian style with a delicious meaty tomato sauce, and the noodles were perfect, and a ton of ricotta. WOULD RECOMMEND!! Only took 20 minutes in the oven, too, and the calories and carbs per serving are really not bad at all!! Not KETO but the lower carbs might fit into a low carb diet. We got it at Costco. Pretty yummy!

Not that she can relax even if she tries. Why? Because she’s staying in an apparently haunted cottage in the middle of the Louisiana bayou. Add to that, her familiar, a proper British housecat, is suddenly acting like a rude, creepy lecher. She also has a supposed ghost leaving her menacing, but possibly, helpful messages.

1. I’m on a tear reading Jana Aston books. It started with her new Central Park novella (loved it!) & then I wanted more LOL.
Went on to Good Girl & Good Time (Vegas Billionaires), & liked then even more this round. Now on the Café series…Right #1, Wrong #2, (read Trust #3 a few weeks ago).
2. Got tired of hamburgers. So cooking up some some old favourites & trying to include some veggie meals. So far, Braised chicken with artichokes and olives, Spanish spinach with chickpeas and Curried chicken and rice soup. Hoping to stay in the zone & keep it up.
3. So-so weather for trick or treaters here. 11c degrees with showers. 🙁 My husband just got the candy – he said he made sure they were some of my favourites. Oh no, I said. 🎃🙄
OMG your braised chicken with artichokes and olives sounds divine!!!! That is totally my thing. I’d add sone feta cheese to it once it would be on my plate. YUMMY!
LOL!! And my boyfriend wanted to buy the candy early this month and I said no way… it will never last. LOL!!!
We were “lucky” this year with good weather for trick or treating. I had already gone once and trick or treating is not my favorite part of the season, but we went this year. Last day for the costumes today! I put out glow necklaces and pretzel/breadstick dippers for the other trick or treaters and I get the leftovers. I’m happier with them than the candy. The kids got 3 weeks of their candy and I just had hubs take everything to work. Mine never tire of it. Lol!
Also, just finished up the last of the veggie soup I made last week. One of the better ones I made. Now I want a hamburger. 😂
I love veggie soup. I’ve never made a homemade one yet (with the broth being made from the vegetable juices themselves. I did find a recipe out there that is hilarious on Youtube… lemme try and find it.
Here it is!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21ofoREnXbM&t=325s
What a great video. I like that I don’t have to follow a recipe…freedom! Might make that today.
Right?? It’s so funny when he gets all technical and then screams NO!!!! Just throw it in!!! Who cares, it’s gonna be good! LOL!!!
I have made this recipe a couple times. 😂 I feel so accomplished and it does taste fantastic!
Tasha, sounds like a cool Hallowe’en at your place! I really like the idea of swapping dippers for the candy. M&M peanuts are my downfall. 🙂
Veggie soup – so great in the fall!
I didn’t think I’d feel this way so soon, but, I’m over the Halloween/spooky/thriller books right now and all I want is to curl up with a cozy read or even Christmas. I have 3 I’m trying to finish up soon here, but I really want something different. Curse of the mood reader. Lol
Agree…already sorting out my Christmas books 🙂 🎄
