Don’t you love Halloween? Kids dress up in cutest costumes and there are tons of candies everywhere. Halloween is not actually celebrate here in Asia, but since our world’s getting smaller and we all absorb each other culture, Halloween become a funky trend for adults unlike in western world where it’s more like a day for the children.
So what usually happen here are crazy costume parties, pubs and bars go wild with their decorations, alcohols are more likely to be more popular than candies.
There won’t be kids on the street playing “trick or treat” unless there are some arrangements from some special communities. Some families do have their own private party just like ours…
Halloween is a fun family time with a lot of foods, spooky movies or tales, and of course candies.
This year we are quite prepared for it. Sadik bought Yaseen costume for US where he was on business visit a week ago. He also bought a lot of chocolates and candies which we will share with neighbors and friends. We will also make some candies and cookies which I still search for new challenging recipes. The dinner will be fun with a lot of snacks.
There is one recipe I believe to be so perfect for Halloween breakfast… pumpkin pancake.
It’s one of the best ways to welcome this fun holiday.
