Just a quick post to wish all of you ghosts and goblins a safe and happy Halloween.
Lots of food memories for me on this holiday. Popcorn balls, pillow cases full of candy, costumes and parties, the list goes on.
Today marks a first for me on Halloween. I ran my personal best of 12 miles in preparation for my first half marathon next Saturday, November 7th. It didn’t really feel like Halloween, as I was just trying to stay upright and keep going forward.
I did however, hit the grocery store this late afternoon in preparation for an autumn dinner of Yellow Curry. The DH was craving it, so I complied. The dinner of shrimp curry, rice and paan was quite lovely actually. I thought (briefly) to photograph the meal in progress, but my body was still in recoup mode, actually surprised to find myself vertical at this point, so I didn’t want to rock the boat.
I will say however, this meal is worthy of a repeat, so I will post photos and recipes next week. The meal is easy, fast and really satisfying.
Oh, and it’s also easy on the waistline as I continue to move down the charts. I have now lost a total of 23 pounds, just 5 pounds shy of my goal. Remind me to stay on the good path next time I decide to eat my way through 2 years with reckless abandon. Stupid Kat.
Which reminds me of another milestone come this October 31st. No Halloween candy in the house. None. I thought about it for sure, especially with the promise of young neighborhood trick or treaters arriving at our door. How could I disappoint? Should I pass out money instead? Seriously? Is that a consideration for some people?
Well, no such luck at this casita people. Let’s keep moving. I think instead, I will settle into a warm, plush bed a bit early tonight with my trusted and loyal boys, Dirk and Shadow. Together we will all keep the ghouls and goblins at bay. And, the candy.
