    This looks delicious! (A tip for adding the flour and avoiding the lumps – sprinkle over whatever is in the pan, stirring until everything is coated evenly – then add the liquid slowly, making sure the liquid is measured and ready when you add the flour – to avoid burning. I had encountered the same issue and found this method prevent lumps.)

    Thank you for sharing not only your recipe but your Halloween with us! A very merry Samhain to you!

      Thanks Mere! How was your Samhain?

      I will try that method next time. I’m pretty new to cooking…at least harder things. I’m trying to get the hang of it but dang some things are complicated!

    That looks delish!

    We actually met up with Chris’ mushroom foraging friends on our way home on Sunday. You’d like the hike if not the bounty.

    Giving out candy to the adorable kids always makes me a little verklempt. They’re just so cute and sweet. We had one little boy who waved to us and said Bye for like 5 minutes. So adorable!

    But I think we probably had a few less than last year.

      I would love to know about that hike! And the website for the mushroom kits too. Even if I won’t eat them I know someone that will. 😉

      I really love passing out the candy to the kids. They are so cute!

    I’m a little biased. I thought my kids were pretty cute, and no one in our neighborhood had the same costumes as them. One went as an astronaut and the other went as T-Rex. It was a good time.

    I love the picture of you in the witchy costume at the stove with your cauldron brew.
