My traditional Halloween meal is Chicken Cacciatore- really fragrant. Best compliment I ever got was some kid who had just gotten his candy who sniffed and said longingly that my house smelled real good.
Might just do that tomorrow night although the girls are now 27.
Yum! We usually have chili, but that's out this year since we're eating very low carb. I think I have enough odds and ends on hand to do chicken cacciatori in the crock pot.

I haven't tried it in the crockpot- for us its a stove top dish, but that is not a bad idea.

FWIW I use the Joy of Cooking recipe and doctor it up a bit

I've heard that in the rich area by me, parents of trick-or-treaters are offered wine. Grown up trick-or-treating. I'm tempted to borrow some kids tomorrow night.
I know people who give out beer and wine coolers to the parents. And it's not a rich area at all -- just fun people.

If it is done as an act of reverence, love and respect, then it is just your views that see it as sad, and frankly limited.

LOL - afriend of mine in NJ and I were just e-mailing and he commented that he had to remember to pick up beer for the trick or treating parents tonight. He said a solo cup and a wagon means they want beer.:D

He's been on his high and mighty horse lately. Maybe his hangover's wearing off.

I've seen that around my neighborhood too. I dunno, I think drinking while you're taking you're kids trick or treating is kinda low brow and tacky.

I may have miss-read your post. I took your comment to mean that the cultures that do those things are sad, as in a sorry example of how to treat the dead.

My horse is high and mighty, and he will grind you under his hooves like so much dirt on the path beneath him.

Who said anything about driving? Walking the streets drinking beer from a solo cup while you're with your kids? Low brow.

That would be the "fancy cups", which make it high brow. If the were drinking from the Mason jars, that would be low brow.

The photo of a two year old little girl, dressed up and dead on a velvet draped fainting couch, is pretty damn sad.....in any culture....not a matter of any type of judgement....
