My Texas Table - 20 Of My Favorite Halloween Sweets & Treats

Happy Sunday  friends!!!  

I hope you're having a great weekend?  Today is a beautiful-sunny 65 degrees here in North Texas, so Fall is definitely in the air. We had non-stop rain for the last week, so I'm glad it's finally come to an end. Today I took full advantage of  our wonderful weather, I opened all of the windows to enjoy the breeze, laundered all of our bedding, hung it on the clothes line to dry, caught up on my Little House series, worked on the computer and was even able to can a batch of vanilla - peach jam, so all in all it's been a very productive day.  

Halloween is just around the corner, so it's time to start thinking about all things, spooky, yummy, and fun. This is my favorite time of year and I love whipping up festive Halloween treats. If you're looking for a few simple sweets and treats, I got you covered with 20+ of my favorite Halloween recipes, perfect for parties, get-togethers or for a Kid-friendly Halloween meal. I hope you find something you like in this months issue of My Texas Table.

    Recipes that I found online (not mine) that I can't wait to share with you.
     Last week I came across this amazing Strawberry Pretzel Salad and these Garlic Butter Steak Bites while scrolling through my Face book feed. The pretzel salad is one of my favorites and also delicious using raspberry Jell-O. Stop by Bread, Booze & Bacon and Jo Cooks to get the full recipes.  
    Seasonal or featured recipe that I think you'll like. 
    Them temps are slowly starting to dip down here in Texas, so that means it's soup season!!!!! Today I'm sharing Pork Caldo which is one of my favorite soups. Pork Caldo is a Mexican inspired vegetable soup with a seasoned broth and tender pieces of pork carnitas. What I love most about Authentic Mexican soups is that they're made with simple, fresh ingredients and are always bursting with flavor. A few of my favorites are, Beef or Pork Caldo, Pork Pozole, Albondigas (Mexican meatball soup), Tortilla soup and even Menudo.  Click here to get the full recipe.

    October is starting out to be a crazy, busy month, so I didn't have time to plan out our monthly menu plan. If you're in a dinner rut and looking for a few new meal ideas, check out my Monthly Menu Plan Archives.  

    Books and Cookbooks that I think you'll love!
    Little House Living: The Make-Your-Own Guide to a Frugal, Simple, and Seft- Sufficient Life by mother and blogger Merissa A. Alink.  This is a great book to help you get started on living a more wholesome and frugal life. This book has a wealth of information for making your own packaged mixes, cleaners and wonderful homemade recipes using pantry staples. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to prepare homemade meals and live a more simple, self-sufficient life. Merissa is living the life, I hope to live one day soon!
