A Halloween Party and Pink Saturday Too

What an exciting day!!! The enchanting Ms. V, of A Fanciful Twist, is hosting a fabulous Halloween Blog Party, and the Lovely Beverly, of How Sweet The Sound, is hosting the delightful Pink Saturday!! Visit them both and join in the fun.

This is the story of Trudie, you see
she wasn't like you and she wasn't like me.
She was a witch of the witchiest kind,

but when she put on pink she became true and kind.

One day when Trudie as walking to school, a small little bird squeaked,

"Why be so cruel ?"

She thought and she thought and she thought all the day.

"Why am I witchy and mean anyway?"

She pondered what she could do to bring change,
when suddenly she began to feel strange.
She ran into her house and then reappeared dressed all in pink,
all her friend thought her weird.

But then they discovered how pink made her change,
this mean little witch had been rearranged.
Once she'd been mean and always unkind,
but now she was a friend, the truest you'd find.

Now each year when Halloween come around she has the
grandest party in town.
What do you think this friendly witch serves?
Pink little ghosts, their good for the nerves.

Trudie's Pink Halloween Ghosts

3 egg whites

1/4 t cream of tartar

1/8 t salt

1 1/4 t vanilla

drop of red food coloring

1/2 C sugar

Beat egg whites and next 4 ingredients at high speed until foamy.

Add sugar, 1 T at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved.

Drop spoon fulls onto parchment lined cookie sheets, drag and swirl the mixture with your spoon to create ghosts, add mini chocolate chips for eyes.

Bake at 200 for 2 hours; turn on oven. Let meringues stand in closed oven with light on for 8 hours.

Fancy That, Pink is good for the attitude and calms the nerves too!!
Happy Halloween, DeeLight
