Yowee. Power was finally restored to our community this Halloween day mere hours before the traditional Trick or Treat time in the neighborhood.

My giant silver tin pumpkin with the black metal handle overflowing with assorted candy was all ready for the usual flurry of around a hundred children arriving in costume.

I then set to the task of preparing the annual Halloween Dinner. We have shared the Halloween dinner tradition with our neighbors for let us see, nineteen years now, even before first moving into our house where they hosted the first evening event that year.

Other neighbors who have since moved away used to participate too. One year one of the neighbors thought it would be funny to arrive at my kitchen window, you know, as the old axe murderer routine dressed in a frightening mask and costume. It was too late to realize the trick before I made a complete fool of myself screaming and running around the kitchen like a mad woman.

Each Halloween brings a new menu, wine and dinner served as soon as all of the neighborhood children that you watch grow up over the years have settled into their homes for the evening. With my Grandson the J-Dude here I am now on my second generation of enjoying new groups of neighborhood children grow up (and schoolmates at Halloween Parades) too.

Hosting the Halloween Dinner event this year, given the circumstance of the week’s extremely horrible Power Shortage enabled preparing only one dish, but it was an excellent choice nevertheless with Braised Veal Shoulder Chops, Baby Onions, Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives on Lemon Pepper Pappardelle.

Pre-Storm I had toasted some slices of stale baguette brushed with olive oil and topped with pepper and some dry Parmesan cheese for dipping into the gravy.

The meal was perfect served with robust flavored red wine. The evening also evoked a true appreciation of light and warmth in the house, it sure was great to have the Power restored.
