I absolutely love Halloween photos.  I don’t know what it is about your friends being in ridiculous wigs and outfits, but it is hilarious.  This year Michael and I were “The Birds and The Bees” (he is the giant chicken – it was the best bird costume we could find at the rental store).

I keep a box of costumes that I like to pull out on random occasions during the year…normaly after everyone has had a couple of cocktails.  I guess we all still have fun playing dress up!

I love Trader Joes.  Last night I discovered a microwavable cheese fondue there.  In 5 minutes flat I had a delicious cheese fondue ready.  I chopped up some green apples, cauliflower and french bread while the fondue was in the microwave.  I absolutely LOVE fondue, but it normally is such a process to make.  YUM-O
