I've always decorated for Halloween, and always had family and friends over for pizza. Things have not changed. Today is Pizza day.It's been a tradition for many, many years I know what everyone likes, so the menu is simple. Most pizzas have to have sausage, as long as I order something with meat in it-I'm good.
My personal preference is thin extra crispy artichoke hearts and giardiniera combo. It is spicy and absolutely delicious. One local pizza place makes it to perfection, Good & Fresh Pizza Bakery.I used to bake for Halloween, now Costco fills the void well. My baking starts at Thanksgiving. Time does have a way of catching up with us. Maybe once I retire I'll have a bit more of that elusive thing called 'time'. Somehow, I doubt it; the plan is to immerse myself in writing and prove to myself that I can succeed in this strange, wonderful and challenging business.
In the meantime there is one more rum recipe I want to share with you. Positively yummy and easy to make. It's all about easy.Rum Balls:
2 1/2 cups of ground Vanilla wafers5 1/2 cups of ground walnuts ( I use a food processor for both the wafers and nuts)
1 cup of honey1 cup of rum (I use dark rum)
1 cup or as needed of powdered sugarMix all ingredients well. Let rest covered in bowl for a couple of hours. I've even left overnight.
Form into balls and roll in powdered sugar. ( I use a teaspoon to scoop out the mix)
Set on foil or plastic wrap and let dry a couple of hours, put on serving plate, sprinkle more powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
