But Before We Get to Halloween - As I post this, Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the East Coast. In DC, the rain is now steady and the winds are picking up. I'm not tempting fate by going out, but some have to - because of job, family, or an emergency. Wheverever you are, if you're in the path of the storm, stay safe and be sane. And I hope that you will have power and the energy on Wednesday to enjoy Halloween.
By now you have seen innumerable cute, Halloween-themed recipes. And I'll bet you have a Halloween candy plan in place, whether you buy only as much as you expect to give out or hope to horde some for later consumption. If you have kids or are going to a grown-up Halloween party, you may well have planned, bought or made costumes too. In other words, you are well prepared to celebrate if you are so inclined.
The fun stuff is what Halloween should be about - not an unintended and unfortunate “incident” that mars the memories and maybe worse.
