Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! Thank you for following along with me for this month’s THEYDRAWTOBER Challenge. I am grateful to you, my followers!

Here’s a piece of virtual Halloween cake!

Witches Brew

I have to say, this one was so MUCH fun. I played with many different Procreate features and brushes and I had a blast. This totally went an entirely different direction than I was thinking but once I drew the cauldron, it was just me being intuitive and right brained the rest of the way.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorites and I can’t believe I haven’t made it yet. I love anything pumpkin. I am overdue for muffins and pumpkin bread, too. I did make Zucchini Muffins last week using Oat Flour. They were yummy!


Well this was easy. I opted out of the standard wrapper candy and went with the ‘movie box’ candy. This is the kind of candy where we’ll go to the dollar store and pick up the movie boxes for a buck a piece and take them in with us. We saw “No Time to Die” last week and I bought the Swedish Fish and gave them to my husband to carry in.

He ate the entire box.

Root veggies

Ahhh, one of my favorite foods in the fall no winter. I love roasted root vegetables. I love taking carrots and parsnips, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes and beets and roasting them with chicken. There are so many baking pan recipes these days that are perfect for easy meals.

Hmm. Maybe that’s what we’ll have for dinner tomorrow.

PS….rutabagas…..OMG, peel them, simmer them in water, mash them with whatever butter you prefer, maybe a dash of salt and that’s all you need to do.

Heaven in a bowl.


I like poms but they are quite the mess when cutting them. They are great in salads and such. I just found out I could grow them here which is very interesting. We can grow avocados, too, so I am trying to get my hands on a tree or plant one from a seed.

I haven’t tried juicing one yet in our juicer and I am wondering how bad that might be.😎

I just bought a pomegranate the other day as something else to add to my fall salads, plus they would be good on homemade smoothie bowls. It was very cooperative when it modeled for me.
