It's 1 am on October 31st and I am writing this as the television set behind me plays Ace of Cakes. Yes, folks, instead of Count Dracula, or Frankenstein's Monster, or even, my favorite horror character, Freddy Kruger scaring me out of my wits in the wee hours, I hear the cheerful voice of Chef Duff Goldman.

I have my wife, who loves the Food Network, to thank for this. But I have to admit that it is fun to watch people cook dishes you have no desire or ambition to even attempt. Although, maybe watching Ace of Cakes is a better idea than watching a horror movie. Since watching one late at night is similar to eating right before bed because both will give you nightmares. And who wants to have nightmares on Halloween. :-)

But since it is Halloween, this post should include something related to this wonderful holiday. So, here is a little Monster Mash for all you ghouls. :-)
