Bejeezus 12 Tease: Spooktacular Pumpkin Roll

So, the theme of 12 is "Ghosts". My PacMan Ghost Iced Sugar Cookie is coming soon, but for now you are left with the Spooktacular Pumpkin Roll (adding a make-believe adjective qualifies this sweet treat for the ghost category, right)? I'd like to give you the recipe, but you sorta need to just buy Bejeezus 12 when it hits the stands. And you know I'll let you know when it hits the stands!

This particular roll is not vegan, but the vegan version of this recipe will be posted soon. Since I am not including the vegan recipe in Bejeezus 12, I feel no obligation to hold it back. I just need a little time to perfect it. Hold those horses!

Butchertown Yikes

Kennedy, Mary Jane and I were on our morning walk around the neighborhood and we saw this.

I've seen, smelt and heard quite a few creepy things around Butchertown... but this might top them all. There was the zombie cyclist with a cocked head and unblinkable bloodshot eyes, the 'special', cross-eyed man who lives at the blue, corner Meth house that walks his trash 5 block away to dispose of any evidence, and the wife-beater wearing kid who beats on his woman in the 1300 block (he has silver balls attached to his ol' truck). Oh Butchertown, how I love your color.

Not Bloggin'

So, there are a few reasons that I haven't been prioritizing my blog: First reason being Mary Jane Rebel, Second reason being the early August move to The 806, Third reason being our new booth at Crazy Daisy Antique Mall.

Since there's not piles of cash laying around the house, we decided to work our ass off and make some. Our booth at Crazy Daisy is the kick-start to our daughter's travel/college fund. We want to make sure she has enough money to do what ever her heart desires when she is 18. So, we're buying crappy old furniture and making it look a whole lot better. Forgive us, the booth is a little skimpy right now but it'll be filling up with more vintage goodies real soon. Whoo who!

But I solemnly swear to go to the grocery and cook something wonderful next week that I can share with my readers. Who knows, maybe I'll bake some goodness too.
