Be honest… how many of you are trying to put up your Christmas trees today? You know that at 12:01am on November 1st it’s “Game On” right? haha.
Well I’m going to try and make it through Thanksgiving without decorating for Christmas but that doesn’t mean that I won’t start listening to Christmas Music before then! After Halloween, Christmas is my 2nd favorite Holiday! So you can’t keep Christmas from me too long!
Did you get to celebrate Halloween last night? I know we did! We went trick or treating with our cousins Crystal and Levi and our god-daughters Layla and Emma!
I dressed up as Minnie Mouse, Layla was a Dinosaur and Emma was a Bumblebee! BigBear, Crystal and Levi were themselves haha. (Boring Old People!) haha 😉 Just Kidding (kinda)
I was a little disappointed in the amount of people passing out candy last night, or I suppose I should say the LACK of people handing out candy! There were hardly any porch lights on and hardly anyone in the Halloween Spirit.
I remember when we were little we use to go trick or treating from like 6pm-10pm and the streets were packed with kids! This year? The streets were empty. It was kind of sad actually.
Next year I guess we’ll have to hit up some of the trunk or treats, although I have to admit that I really miss the memories of going door to door. 🙁 People! Please get back into the Trick or Treating spirit! I miss you!
But let’s move back to November now! As we move on to November it’s hard to not notice that the temperatures are drastically changing! Do you know that it’s absolutely freezing here? I could see my breath when I took dogs out this morning and I’m surprised that the rain outside hasn’t turned into ice. I saw on Facebook that is was even snowing in the mountains a few hours from us! WINTER IS COMING! haha 😉
What do we do when it’s freezing out? We make comfort food! What comfort food do we make? PASTA…duh! 😉
While I’m sure I’ll be making tons of soups and stews soon I just can’t pass up the opportunity to have pasta! What’s even better is that this pasta is a ONE POT pasta! Everything is cooked in the same pot!
Yep, you dump everything into a pot, stir and cook until done!
