Happy Halloween, friends!
I promise Charlie enjoyed his baby dragon costume more than he is letting on in this photo :)
Thank you so much for the fun suggestions in the comments section of my post last week about Halloween traditions! There were some great ones, so if you don’t have any plans for the day, pop over to the post here to give it a read.
I especially loved hearing from people through comments and messages that you’ve adopted our chili for Halloween dinner tradition! We borrowed the tradition from my parents, who used to host other parents for chili and drinks while the kids (ahem, high schoolers…) ran around the neighborhood trick or treating. Last year, we made How Sweet It Is’ Spicy Chicken Chili with Pumpkin Beer Biscuits, and our go-to chili recipe is Eat Yourself Skinny’s Turkey Chili. This year, we’re trying the recipe from the Whole30 cookbook (Day 10 today!), but this one is compliant and looks delicious.
As shown in the photo above, the three of us headed to the Halloween-themed storytime at our library yesterday, which was so much fun! Charlie and I are regulars, so it was sweet to share one of our go-to activities with Dave. Along with cooking up our chili tonight, we’re planning to bring Charlie “trick or treating” at a few neighbors’ houses, pass out Halloween candy, and watch Harry Potter. Definitely on the low-key side, but we are looking forward to it :)
Hope you have a fun day, whatever you’re up to! And if you have little ones, let me know what they’re dressing up as–it was so hard to choose just one costume!
