Halloween and Yummy Food

Sunday, November 1, 2009

The fiancé and I are not really big on Halloween, but we decided to be festive and stop by the med school Halloween party last night. My favorite costumes were a couple dressed as a southern belle and confederate soldier. Her costume looked just like what Scarlett O’Hara wore when she went to visit Rhett Butler in jail. I told the fiancé this was on our must do list for some Halloween in the future.

(I don't think we're very scary vampires)

The Poe Cat dressed up for Halloween as a black cat (he obviously put a lot of time and effort into his costume)! I so wanted to make him a cute costume, but he gets all grumpy if we even try to make him wear a collar.

Here’s a much cuter picture of the fiancé and the Poe Cat

It’s been such a cold, rainy weekend here – perfect for lots of cooking and staying inside. Unfortunately, the fiancé had his daily date with the library, so I decided to make something yummy for him to come home to. I made quiche Florentine for dinner and a pumpkin cream cheese roll for dessert. Fiance loved it! I’ve made many a quiche, but had never used this recipe before. I must say, I really liked it. I had no issues with it setting, and it didn’t call for heavy cream.

I’ve never made a pumpkin cream cheese roll, but it was super easy too! It turned out so yummy, I have a feeling I’ll be making this again soon.

As I was putting together my weekly shopping list I came upon a recipe for Red Pepper Vodka Penne. I have always wanted to make this, never have. I mixed the red pepper and the vodka together to sit for two days before I can make it. I’ll update on how this one turns out…



  1. I'm so into the vampire thing now that I love the twilight series. Hope you had fun! xoxo


  2. That quiche looks delicious! Yum! And, I love making those pumpkin cream cheese rolls, too.

  3. That quiche does look delicious! Congrats on the pumpkin rool too. I've always thought they would be difficult to make for some reason? Hmmm...perhaps it would be a great addition to our Thanksgiving dinner spread :)

  4. What a great dinner! I'm super impressed with the pumpkin roll! Can you share the recipe?

  5. I've always wanted to be Scarlett for Halloween! That dinner sounds delish!
