This is my son's first Halloween. I usually try to avoid Halloween like the plague, but last year we had so much fun that I'm starting to like this holiday again. We sat out on the front patio of our favorite spot downtown Encinitas and watched all the trick-or-treaters and their costumes walk by like a parade. It was kind of like participating without really participating. This year is probably the last year I can get by without trick-or-treating so we'll sit it out again, eat our burgers and just enjoy the show.
This illustration was for a food story my paper did on Healthy Halloween options. A dilemma I will have to deal with soon, I suppose. Have a safe and healthy Halloween all!
