Trick-or-Treat!

Thank you to those who have been asking about my whereabouts in the past 3 days. You know me so well to know that something must have been up for me to not be around during MoFo/and my HAL*RAW*WEEN theme. The truth is that I poorly prepared for my niece’s visit from this weekend until today. Not sure what I was thinking (apparently I wasn’t) but I’m back, friends. Thank you again for the concern–oh boy, do I just heart you!

And to show you my appreciation, I made you some Raw Caramel Apples. Sans poison, I swear  {I’m eating one right now just to prove that they are safe}.

My goodness, they are *coughing* delicious. Caramel apples *choke* are my absolute favorite for Hallowe.. *gurgle* *splat*

And I’m dead.

Just kidding.
