Halloween Popcorn Mix

It’s officially October, I’m now allowed to post ghoulish treats to my heart’s content without backlash. Eeeeeeee hee hee hee hee hee!

 

I do get a little excited this time of year. The moment I feel a chill in the air, I’m ready to dig out my Halloween decorations, and put on my tall creepy hat and feathered boa.

I really don’t see why I can’t strut around in my Halloween hat all year long, but Lt. Dan won’t let me.

…Something about special occasions and dignity, I don’t know.

Making Halloween Popcorn Mix

Anyway, this is the month of conspicuous costumes, frightful fun, and dreadfully decorative dishes. We’re already planning all the menacing munchies we’ll serve Halloween night and this popcorn mix is on the list.
