Happy Hallows!

Changing season, rainy & windy here in Oregon - but not NEARLY the storm that the East Coast has been experiencing (Sandy) ....

This evening friends are gathering for Halloween at Nancy's house. Her street decorates for holidays, & as many as 300 T or Ters come to her door! So she has us over for a little potluck & party.

I'm bringing my Pumpkin Pie Quinoa bake - it's in the oven as I type! Today I used a Cup of quinoa (out of amaranth) 3/4 C pumpkin, 2 C water, the 'usual' other ingredients, plus 1/4 C shredded coconut, 1/4 C carob powder & 1 Tbsp cacao nibs. Mmmm - hope some's left over!

Do you love quinoa? Or is it 'so-so' for you? Here's another blogger's take on ways to spice it up - "Quinoa, like anything else, has to be cooked right to taste right..."

My mama would have been 100 this fall (made it to 93!) & my daddy died 20 years ago last summer - so am thinking of them as we turn the page of the year

Happy Hallows!
