Halloween 2010…a much-anticipated night at our house, and yours as well, if you have little ones! Despite the 30 minutes of tears and drama while getting suited up (itchy costumes, wishing straight hair was curly, “costume isn’t cute”, “no wings,” “hurt!”), we pulled it together and had a fun night with friends and neighbors! So there’s the truth behind these precious faces:)
A wingless, antennae-less yummy ladybug, “Mitchie” from Camp Rock (don’t worry, nobody else knew who that was either), and a Skeleton
We really did have a fun night after we left the house. Getting all 5 of us ready to do just about anything is…well…not fun.

All dressed up and ready to go!

I thought I’d pop in a yummy recipe since I took this last night, and as always, the bowl was almost empty!
This tried and true shoepeg corn dip recipe belongs to a dear family friend, and it became a staple on our Grove table before the Ole Miss football games when I was in college. To this day, it remains one of my favorites!
1 can shoepeg corn (10 oz), drained
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup mayo (Hellman’s or Dukes)
2 1/2-3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onions (3 or 4)
Lea and Perrins (5 or 6 shakes)
Tony Chascher’s Creole Seasoning (5 or 6 shakes or more if desired)
Mix all together except Frito’s. Best if made several hours or 1 day before to allow flavors to mingle. Serve cold with Frito’s Scoops. Forget self-control. It is too yummy!
