The other day my friend Kim asked me why I don’t care much for Halloween.
The answer is pretty simple : we don’t have Halloween in Romania. Recently people started to dress up and throw a Halloween party but there’s no such thing as trick or treat.
And since I moved on this side of the pond, somehow it didn’t impress me that much to call it a favorite Holiday.
Hubby loves it and so does our little lady bug and I go with the flow but I don’t do any spooky, scary desserts or decorations.
No, my heart beats for Christmas. If it’s up to me I’d already have the Christmas tree up, carols playing all day long and us sipping on hot cocoa in the afternoon.
We do have a “ghosty” night, if I may say so. The night of November 30th, St. Andrew’s night when tradition says to hang garlic by the front door to keep the bad spirits outside.
I’m taking this tradition a little more serious and I think I’m going to eat as many as these garlicy crescents as possible. This for sure will keep the bad spirits away from my family.
I actually made these last week, and they were gone in no time.
I used freshly minced garlic mixed with salted butter and brushed these little babies on the inside and the outside. Oh, the smell of garlic while they bake, it drives me insane, I’m telling you. All i want is to open the oven, grab one and eat it. I am so weak when it comes to garlic bread.
