You've been Brew-ed... Halloween Beer Gifts

Why should kids have all of the Halloween fun?
Not only should October days be full of BOOs 
but don't forget about those who may enjoy some BREWs!

A delivery of ice cold Witches' "Brews" 
will ensure a very Happy h-ALE-oween!

and if other BOO-ze is what you prefer...
there's a tag for that too.

Steak and Egg Salad with Lemon Horseradish Vinaigrette

Most of my favorite salads are what I've created out of left overs. 
This Steak and Egg Salad is no exception.
It's a classic combination that has been around forever for a reason.
Delicious sliced steak and hardboiled eggs,
 right out of the frig made my lunch so quick and easy.

The real star of this recipe is the dressing.
It's fresh and bright with just the slightest amount of kick from the horseradish.

Is it bad that I'm planning on serving steak again tonight for dinner 
so I can have this salad for lunch again?

Blessed be the Fruit- Handmaid's Tale Emmy Snacks

The Handmaid's Tale is nominated for 20 Emmy Awards this year.
It is cause for celebration or as they would say in Gilead,
Praise Be!

It is a dark and suspenseful story 
and I felt like we needed a little brightness and levity to enjoy during the show.
Blessed be the Fruit and the Handmaids...

Fresh, ripe strawberries are instantly transformed into handmaids 
that even Aunt Lydia would be proud of...

You just need berries, mini white baking cups and toothpicks...

fold the cup in half...

and secure on either side of the strawberry with a toothpick... 
(I broke mine in half)

Enjoy the show...
the Emmy Awards are sure to be a Blessed Day!

and if you'd like to toast the show...
check out the Handmaid's cockTAILs I made last year
