So it’s that time of the year again! Amidst all the Halloween parties here and there, I have decided to gather some leftovers from the fridge. There were some pieces of hotdogs and marshmallows from the previous birthday bash.
Those were very popular among children. Now recently, while checking out some foodie blogs, I came across some fanciful desserts that are especially made during Halloween. I thought of giving it a try, considering the ingredients are all available within my reach.
First thing I tried was the cheesy fingers. It’s pretty simple! Just fry the dogs and cut a little in the midsection. I chose to put a slice of cheese to serve as the fingernail. Use ketchup as paste and dip.
Second I did was the eyeball marhsmallows. I bought a pack of smarties for toppings and ketchup once again for the bloody drops.
And here’s how it looked like.
Again, these are all finger foods and can easily be consumed. I think this is perfect for Halloween home parties. Do you have any other flavorful ideas? Share ’em!
1. Remember why you started
What has inspired you to be on the path you are on? Anytime we forget our roots or the purpose for why we are in our current situation, it is easy to see our challenges only as difficulties. How many challenges have you overcome to get where you are? I am sure there are too many to count. It might be helpful to write down or say out loud the reasons why you started your endeavor. What was your intention? What was your goal? It is important for us to take a step back and remember who, what or why we decided to put energy into something.
2. You are not what you do How do you identify yourself? Take a moment to reflect on how you describe yourself. Would you describe yourself as caring, generous or loving? Would you describe…
It’s been quite a while! I have been busy with extra-curriculars lately, that’s why. One thing I was working on was learning a new language: Nihonggo. And yes, I am an uber-beginner, like close to zero. Fortunately, there are tons of sites online for me to learn from. Honestly, I did have a hard time looking for the best, until my good friend recommendedhttps://www.japanesepod101.com. I checked it out, and found a lot of useful tools.
I am currently done with at least 10 lessons out of 60 per season/module. And there are 9 modules each for absolute beginner, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. So imagine how long it would take to finish each. But after listening (or watching, if you prefer) to one audio lesson, I realized it’s not bad. Actually, it’s stuffed with all the relevant phrases one would need to survive daily activities. I am impressed. I continued and went along with the flow of the routine. I cannot say I am conversant yet (way too early for that) but I am definitely getting the hang of it. More practice, for sure, and I’d be better.
Is anyone else learning a new language now? Care to share handy tips & tricks? I’m all for it.
