More Halloween Fun

Every year about this time, the stores present a display of Halloween costumes.

And every year about this time, The Captain has to try on the newest Halloween masks.

He has to try them all!

At EVERY store we stop in! We MUST make time to let him try on the masks!

We’ve already determined he’s a goofball.

This post is just to drive the point home.

(See, I told you his eyes are blue)

Not only does he try on the masks, but he has to play the part that the mask suggests. If it is a gorilla, he has to have the hands to go with it. A hunchback, he hunches over and limps along.

This is my first year blogging. And my first year that my camera HAS to go everywhere I go.

As soon as we came upon the masks and he grabbed the first one, I whipped out my camera and started snapping.

He then realized he has documentation of every mask he’s modeled. Now he has to see each picture as I take it.


The hard part is to cover up that darned tag that’s attached to it.

We have a lot of fun at Halloween.

Stick around, I’m sure they’ll be more masks to model!


Garlic Potatoes

  A few years ago, at a family get together, I made these potatoes, along with this grilled chicken recipe.

They were a hit.

Everyone was either asking for the recipe or asking for an invite the next time I made them.

They are really easy to make. You can pop them in the oven and forget about them.

I thought I’d share them with you for your next big get together.

I hope I’m not too late!

Here’s what you need.

First, preheat the oven to 450. Then wash and cut up the potatoes into bite size pieces.

Clean and cut the onion into wedges.

 Place in bowl, add the vegetable oil and mix well. Then add salt, pepper and garlic powder and toss them to coat well.


With cooking spray, spray a large piece of foil.

Add the potato mixture to the center of the foil and form a packet. Leaving room inside the packet for air circulation.

And place in baking dish.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Open packet and serve.

I hope you try them sometime, they are really tasty.

Garlic Potatoes

 4  medium potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces, about 5 cups

   1  small onion, cut into thin wedges

   2  tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

1/2  teaspoon garlic powder

   1  teaspoon salt

1/4  teaspoon pepper

Aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 450F or preheat grill to medium-high. Spray foil with cooking spray, set aside.

Coat potatoes and onion with oil, then add dry ingredients. Coat well. Put mixture in foil packet and fold the top and sides to seal, leaving room inside for air circulation. Set foil packed in baking pan and bake 35-40 minutes. Or until tender when poked with a fork.
