Halloween Inspiration

The boxes are out and the decorations are going up. I'm feeling especially crafty this year so here is where I've been turning to recently for some more inspiration on decor for the season:

And how about a recipe to get you even more inspired? I made this yesterday morning for a sick boy. He was just lucky that I had some stale bread. And some Pumpkin Butter.

Pumpkin Butter Stuffed French Toast
For 2 people

  • 3 eggs
  • Milk
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice- or apple pie spice or just a dash of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger
  • Stale wholewheat Portuguese Bun Bread- or whatever you have that you can slice
  • Pumpkin Butter- got mine from Trader Joe's
  • Butter
  • Maple Syrup
Make your batter by combining the eggs with a couple glugs of milk in a shallow bowl. Add in the spices and whisk well. Slice your bread thick- about an inch. Cut a pocket into the middle of the bread. Squeeze the bread to open the pocket and fill with a couple tablespoons of Pumpkin Butter. Careful though- not too much! My butter was quite savory. Heat a couple tablespoons butter in a skillet. Place your bread in the egg mixture. let set for 10 seconds and flip to let stand for another 10 seconds. Once the butter has stopped foaming, add the eggy toast. Let sit for a few minutes. Once it is golden brown, flip the toast and continue cooking until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup.

Might want to consider the Grade B type of Maple Syrupr. Do you know the difference? I didn't- until now!
