They're Off~Witches Fly Part 3


Busty, Dusty, Rusty and Musty

Are flying lean and mean,

They steal a song from Shelia

A curio from Christine!


Laurie locks  her windows

Sarah bars the door,

Pat hides all her crystal

When she hears their broomsticks roar.

 ghost table

They make a stop at Holidays

Those girls sure likes their dishes,

They leave a bowl of Groundhog stew,

Yum, it's so delicious!


"Let's go have a party

With those witches with no teeth,

We'll bring a little present"

And steal Wives with Knives new wreath!

_MG_2773Zoulah and Boulag

Zoulah and Beaulah are horrified

They think it is so rude,

Those witches have been drinking

And flying while quite stewed!


"Who gives a fig about those two?"

Musty screeches off with glee

"Should we hit The Tablescaper?"

The other three agree!


They mess up all her linens

And steal some of her coats,

Leave to visit Gollum

And shaving cream her goats!


Cindy, Gail and Suzy

Warn Tess, Elaine and Kitty

Linda, La and Gina

See them heading toward the city.


Marsha  quickly calls Kathleen

Says they'll be there the next morn,

She plans to welcome them back home

With bowls of candy corn.

October Witches 174

Another year of witchy fun

Those four sure caused a scene.

They think you bloggers are the best

October Witches 189 That's it for this year!  Moving on from Halloween.  I hope to do a table next  week for  Pink Ribbon Month, in honor of  all those who who are breast cancer survivors and those who are fighting the battle. 

If anyone would like to join me in this , please let me know.

As a little balance to all that candy we are "testing", :)

a delicious salad with brandied apples.

October Witches 013

I had it at a restaurant recently, and decided to try and duplicate it.

Baby spinach, cranberries, toasted walnuts, red onion, feta cheese, sauteed pork strips, and apples.

Cut the apples and toss in cinnamon and sugar.  Saute them in some butter and add some apricot brandy. 

Let them reduce a bit.

October Witches 012

Don't leave them too long, you still want  them to have a little bite to them.  Pour the remaining juice over the top of the pork on the salad.  I served it with a raspberry vinaigrette.  A nice loaf of crusty bread, and it's dinner!
