I had to share this simple and delicious recipe for oven-roasted red potatoes. Many of my readers may have already tried a similar recipe – but with the colder weather returning for many of us – it is time to get the oven going! This is a fun dish because you can experiment with different seasonings and make enough for left-overs. They heat up nicely the next day. Also use a stick-free foil to line your baking pan for easier cleanup. If you don’t have a stick-free foil, you can use regular foil and lightly coat it with stick-free spray.
Now I need a simple meal for Halloween night. Greg will start carving the pumpkins tomorrow night and the house and outside is decorated. We have pumpkin lights that guide the sidewalk to our porch. Greg will place tea lights in each of the carved pumpkins for the children to enjoy. Click here for last year posting with pictures. We have the movie Halloween playing – I love the opening where the pumpkin slowly comes into view and then takes over the screen. We are also watching the Paranormal Activity 1 – 4. When I watched the first movie it did not make a lot of sense to me and seem rather disjointed. But once I watched the second and third movie it made more sense. Though the third movie is rather terrifying with the witches. We have not seen the fourth one yet – I can only imagine! Last week through our Amazon Prime account we watch the movie Patty Duke was in – Grave Secrets: The Legacy of Hilltop Drive. It did seem a bit dated but I do like Patty Duke. The actor who played her husband, David Selby, looked familiar. I found out he played Quentin Collins in Dark Shadows. When watching the original I did not realize he was so tall! I loved watching that show especially when they got into parallel universes. Do you have any favorite Halloween type movies?
