Yesterday was a busy day with TOPs practice in the morning followed by fun times at our neighborhood Halloween party. Our neighbors who plan and donate their time for our neighborhood parties always do a fabulous job and kids and parents alike always have fun. Last year was our first year attending the Halloween party and Maisie had a blast so she was looking forward to this year. After a bit of back and forth on costume choices she finally decided on the French Princess costume because I could easily layer shirts, tights and leggings under it so to keep her warm on a sunny but chilly day.
The one unfortunate part of the afternoon was the cold which got into all our bones so after winning a GiGi’s cupcake and some chocolate finger pretzels at the cake walk, Maisie decided she was really cold and wanted to return home. Overall it was good party and a fun afternoon.
Once we returned home Maisie changed into her Harujuku cutie outfit and we went out for dinner. Since I didn’t end up cooking and because of the very cold weather we’re experiencing I’m featuring a delicious soup recipe, Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder which will not only heat you up from the hot soup but also from the heat of the peppers. Just click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.
