I can't believe I forgot it was Halloween, but blame it on the Style 25th Anniversary Party last night. Four glasses of wine and two chili egg rolls, or whatever those things were, can be dangerous.
More importantly, at my house, anyway, it's been all-Halloween, all the time, with constant updates on costume decisions and changes every day for the last two and half weeks. I've got to get some real food in my Hermione/Chinese Empress/Nancy Drew and her less fickle gypsy sister before the candy onslaught begins. They just won't eat pizza another day this week, so for this hungover mother, thankfully, Mother Superior Ayun Halliday posted a recipe even I, with my limited mental capacities, can whip up. Here's a link and if you're feeling a little fresher, inspired even, here's another to the kind of great little Halloween treat more temperate mommies make their little darlings on Halloween.
