A "Not So Spooky" Local Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Our little guy isn't into the really spooky Halloween scene quite yet, but he was excited to carve his pumpkin into a spooky ghost (which has a striking resemblance to the ghosts on PacMan).  We're having a "not so spooky" get together with our neighbors and have a locally sourced spread to feed the kids a healthy meal before the sugar overload. 

Savory Treats
Pumpkin Apple Soup with apples from Love Creek Orchards in Medina

Avocado and Tomatillo Salad with Lime Macadamia Dressing made with tomatillos from Johnson's Backyard Garden and limes from Farmhouse Delivery

BBQ Kale Chips made with kale from Caeda Farms in Elgin (We don't have a dehydrator, so I made ours in the oven at 200 degrees for 4 hours)

Olive & Rosemary Spiders with rosemary from our garden

Sweet Treats
Apple Mini-Muffins with Crispy Texas Pecans from Pecan Shop in Waco (available at Wheatsville) - Use the recipe from the link and then add chopped GF oats, pecans and maple syrup on top of the batter before baking

Grain-Free Pumpkin Bread with Vital Farms eggs

Raw Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cookies with pumpkin from Farmhouse Delivery

Raw Caramel Apples with apples from Love Creek Orchards in Medina

Organic Kettle Corn from Hot Rock'n & Pop'n Kettle Corn at Barton Creek Farmers' Market

Marzipan Candies - Blend 2 cups blanched almonds in a food processor and slowly add 1/2 cup local Goodflow Honey. I plan to press the marzipan into candy molds to make spooky shapes. You can also dust them with cocoa powder.

Celebrating Dia de los Muertos? Try some Butternut Squash Tamales made with local butternut squash from Johnson's Backyard Garden.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Reserve your local Thanksgiving turkey from Richardson Farms or Farmhouse Delivery!
