Tonight was filled with good food, good friends, fun costumes and of course... CANDY!
The kids had a blast and so did the adults.
I read a few articles about how if you suffer from fibromyalgia its a bad idea to take naps. Today I found out the hard way that the people who wrote these articles actually knew a little something about what they were saying. Bad Day + Nap = Feel like you got hit by a truck. Seriously.
Luckily I was able to pull it together and make it through dinner. It seems every time we have a particular group of friends over we have tacos. Never fails. This time I decided to change up the usual Pico De Gallo recipe. I am no longer able to eat tomatoes. Its sad... I try not to think about it. Last week we tried a recipe that replaced tomatoes with peaches and it was DELICIOUS. So I decided to use the same trick with my Pico recipe. Results: Peach'O De Gallo (all credit for the name goes to JM).
Peach'O De Gallo:
1 medium onion
1 bunch of cilantro
kosher salt to taste
Dice the peaches, onion, and cilantro and mix them together. Coat the mixture in the juice of 1 lime and then salt to taste.
I also had hot cocoa waiting on our gaggle of trick or treaters when they returned. I doubled this recipe for our group.
12 oz. can evaporated milk
12 oz. water
1/2 cup sugar
1 heaping Tbs Hershey's cocoa
Mix water and evaporated milk and heat slowly to your liking (do not boil).
In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cocoa until well blended. Add 2 Tbs of water and stir until it forms a soupy mix. When the milk is hot enough, slowly stir cocoa mixture, cook over low heat until cocoa mixture is dissolved. Serve warm.
