Witches’ Fly 2010

Last year some naughty witches stole a list of my visitors and played some tricks on them.

Witches’ Fly By


Part 1

Those witches are convening

To make a lengthy queue,

Of Bloggers they will visit

BEWARE! it could be you!

Picture 638

All Susans, Sues and Suzys,

Your names are on their list,

Better put away your treasures

I know you get my gist.

Picture 651

Sarah and Laurie are worried,

They hide their Quimper stash,

And hope those naughty witches,

Get sick on horned toad hash!

Picture 635

They sip a few “bonetinis”,

And have some witchy spats

Then prepare to toilet paper,

Back Porch Musing’s and Brooklyn Pats!

Picture 640

They’ll send some toady pizza,

To Stephanie, Bill and Patti

Rett, Joanne and Marsha,

Hide, as rotten eggs go splattie!

Picture 644

Hey Carols, Lynns and Lindas,

Watch out Natasha too,

They are dropping off a cauldron

Of slimy warthog stew.

Picture 639

If you think their junkets over

You really are quite green,

They hope to visit all the friends

Who hang out with Kathleen!

Picture 647

So Shelia sing your sweet songs

BJ, hide your Dunkin’ D’s,

This trip continues next time,

Come visit if you please!

Cut squash in half and remove seeds

Microwave till you can easily pull strands with a fork.

Use a fork to pull all the strands, mix with olive oil or butter, s and p, grated cheese.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake till top browns.Grate fresh parmesan cheese on top. You can use spaghetti squash any way you would use pasta.  Very easy, enjoy!

Here I used it in individual pans, and I added mozzarella to the mix.

  65. What's happened to Lynn at Happier Than A Pig ?
    I noticed she'd been missing a day or so and tried to visit and her blog is closed. ??
    Do you know anything? She had this Pumpkin party planned and I thought everything was going good..wonder what happened? I don't know how to get thru to her....
