How did you think i got my face ?

How did you think i got my face/?
Marlene Ohlsson

Quote by~Elbert Hubbard
The greatest mistake you can make in life
is to be continually fearing you will make one.

The last week of October is National Popcorn Week. Said to date back at least 6,000 years, popcorn is made from a special variety of dried corn that pops open and puffs up when heated. This transformation occurs because of a high amount of natural moisture trapped inside the hull. Heating the corn creates immense pressure, which bursts open the hull, turning the kernel inside out. Unpopped kernels are referred to in the industry as "old maids." Buttered popcorn sells twice as well as plain popcorn.

Orange and black are the colors of Halloween because orange is associated with the fall harvest and black is the color of darkness
In England, white cats instead of black ones are thought to be bad luck.

Free Sample

Steep 1-2 tsp. chamomile flowers in boiling water for 10-15 minutes. Strain out the water, and apply the hot flowers in a cloth for alleviation of the earache.

Pumpkin Fruit Roll-upsChop pumpkin and cook in saucepan until soft. Use as little water as possible. Puree in blender or food processor until the consistency of thick applesauce. Add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice to mixture. Mix well. Spread puree on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper (I'd use parchment or Silpat) (tape wax paper down so it won't curl over the pumpkin), leaving a 1-2 inch border around the edge. Preheat oven to 275 F and bake for 30-35 minutes. Turn off oven and leave door closed, letting the pumpkin dry 8-10 hours. When cooled to the touch, roll up and cut into 1-inch wide strips. Seal in Ziplock® bags. OR leave flat and use Halloween-shaped cookie cutters to cut into fun holiday shapes.
Note: I would use a small pie pumpkin. I would also roast the pumpkin in the oven instead of cooking it on the stove. Cut the lid off and remove the seeds. Put the lid back on and place the pumpkin on a baking sheet. Bake for at least 45 minutes or until it pierces easily with a fork. Cool it and proceed with the recipe from there. After blending the pumpkin (you may need to add a little water), taste it before putting it in the oven to make sure it is sweet and spicy enough for you.
