hello monday!!!! i hope you all had a safe halloween free of razor blades in your laffy taffy or poison in your milky way's. we here at the anderson household started a new tradition called the switch witch. where the little person in our house trades up her candy for a toy of her choice delivered santa style by the switch witch. i let her pick out 3 pieces of candy of her choice from her trick or treat bag and the rest was for the switch witch to take up to her tree house where she would stuff herself with all the candy until her teeth fell out. unfortunately i was too sick to go trick or treating so i was here manning the door. trick or treating in the 'hood is quite different than trick or treating in white-y town. let's just say the WHOLE family gets in on it. mom's, dad's, aunties, uncles, infants...all have their kroger bags open and waiting for candy. no costumes either. i can't decide whether this is highly annoying or completely awesome. either way halloween is an event in my neighborhood.
so now that the oranges and blacks of halloween are behind us let us make way for the rich browns and golds (and sometimes yellows-which is really just gold without the shiny) of deep autumn. like hazelnut chocolate wrapped in gold paper, luxurious and comforting.
