All week I have been debating wether or not I should hold off from posting this recipe until we were officially in the month of October.
After careful analysis and consideration of the following facts I decided to go forth with it, I’m sure you won’t mind.
- Most major retailers have had their Halloween decorations out for at least a couple of weeks (basically, as soon as their Back to School sales were over).
- I started bringing down Halloween decorations from the attic last weakend.
- The month of October is less than 24 hours away.
- There’s never a bad time to try out a new twist on a classic.
Good enough, right?
