maybe there's a better place for this, but I don't know where, so feel free to move it or be moved by it :-)

Wishing everybody on this great forum a Happy Halloween!

We're having a slow and low cooked beef roast with some salads and bread, before we head out to face the nightmares and monsters abound. Hope you have a great one as well!

I got lucky, Sandy didn't do much damage (NY). Power never went out.

Last year's Halloween was cancelled because of a big snow storm. I was determined to celebrate this year.

For dessert, I found some crazy nuts (caltrop) to go with strawberries.

The strawberries steal the show! Did you paint on each little face? Never seen a caltrop...is the seed edible?

Thanks everyone.

Yes, caltrop nut (Asian waterchestnut) is very edible. There are many recipes you can find on-line.
