Saturday we took it easy, watched some movies and I tried my hand at Homemade Oreo-like Cookies. Honestly, I think that they were a bust and I was pretty annoyed that I spent 3 hours working on them. I like the thought of the chocolate roll out cookie, but it just wasn't chocolatey enough or crispy enough either. The filling was just OK and I would think about re-trying this if I could think of a tweaked recipe. At least they came out cute, and when I get desperate for sweets this week, I will still eat them.
When Halloween Sunday rolled around, I was already taking down our decorations since I leave on Mondays and didn't want them to be up any longer, because obviously it is time to think Turkey! I put a few things up outside for the trick or treaters to see, but we really didnt get that many kids. Being that it is the first year in Gainesville, we didn't know what to expect so I didn't buy too much. We still have some leftover, but I happily left it with Adam and am staying halloween-candy free. It was cute to see all of the kids dressed up and I am loving all of the Facebook photos of people's children decked out as well. I hope that everyone had a safe Halloween!
