Last night we had a bonfire here with two other families. Though cloudy and we couldn't see the stars, the weather was otherwise perfect - the rain held off and the temperature relatively mild for the end of October. We sat around the fire eating and catching up with each other. The kids were running around playing hide and seek in the dark while my brother-in-law suggested that the adults play the memory game of "We're Going On A Bear Hunt." What fun we had!

We did almost all the food over the campfire:

* Hamburgers in a grill basket
* Hot dogs on metal sticks
* Mountain pies - pizza and 4 different kinds of fruit filling
* S'mores
* Peanuts in the shell, chips, a pan of fudge brownies
* Cold drinks, cocoa & hot cider in my percalator

An added bonus: my sister gave me a jar of autumn trail mix that she mixed up - pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries & almonds. Salty & good -
