Happy Halloween From The Realm!

Happy Halloween, The Realm of D.M. Kilgore, Funtastic Friday, Movie Night, Recipes, Fun

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Tonight's Funtastic Friday Festivities:

  1.  A hearty bowl of homemade veggie-beef soup
  2.  Trick Or Treating
  3.  Snuggling up with a family friendly Halloween movie
  4.  Fresh baked cookies and milk
  5.  Tucking in the little goblin with a not-too spooky story
  6.  Scary movie and a little trick or treat time for the adults


Homemade Veggie-Beef Soup

1 box (16 oz) elbow macaroni
1 large can (24 oz) of tomato juice
1 can (8 oz) V-8 juice
2 cups mixed veggies (green beans, peas, corn, carrots, etc)
2 cups diced potatoes
1/4th cup diced onion
1 lb trim beef stew meat

In a large pot:

Put stew meat in pot, cover with 2 cups water, cook on low-med heat until well done

Add all veggies (mixed, onions, potatoes) to the stew meat mix (do not drain the water you cooked the meat in!) continue cooking on low-medium while you boil your macaroni

Cook Elbow Macaroni, drain, add to pot

Pour in Tomato & V-8 Juice, stir well, continue cooking on low-med heat

Salt and pepper to taste

Simmer until nice and hot, stir, serve

I like to serve this soup with grilled cheese roll-ups (piece of bread with crust cut off, one slice cheese, roll it up, brush with butter, grill as you would a grilled-cheese sandwich).

Double-Double No Toil Or Trouble Cookies: 

Grab a batch of your favorite ready-made frozen cookies (We like the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip) and bake them. Couldn't be easier! 


After a night of trick-or-treating we like to settle in with some favorite Halloween movies! It's our tradition to turn off all the lights, light the jack-o-lantern, and curl up with some old faves and one new movie while we nibble on goodies (popcorn and cookies).

Tonight, for our family friendly flicks, we'll be watching:

The Nightmare Before Christmas
It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
ParaNorman (we haven't seen this one before)

Our story time will be an old favorite: BUNNICULA (we love this series so much that we read it every year!)

And then... after the little goblin is all tuckered out and tucked in...

Mom & Dad get to have some spooky fun of their own!

Our "grown-up" movie choices (we each pick one):

 Our "every year" tradition: Trick Or Treat

Hubby's pick:  The Shining (classic that never really gets old, right?)

My pick:  You're Next (haven't seen this one yet, but it looks promising!)

Before calling it a night hubby & I play a little game of "Trick or Treat".

I put a few of our favorite candies and some "coupons" in one of those cheesy plastic trick-or-treat pumpkins and we draw until it's empty. 

We have until NEXT Halloween to make good on the tricks or treats inside. 

I toss in coupons for treats like a "back rub" and tricks like "your turn to cook". 

Get creative and have some fun creating your own!

As you can probably tell, we really dig Halloween.
