do halloween. the right way.
ballet west's performance of dracula.
it's become a tradition of ours to see a ballet once a year.
last year we saw the nutcracker, but based on the synopsis of act 1:
"In the evening, Count Dracula and his wives awaken in their coffins in the crypt of his castle. In order to satisfy the lust of the Count, his most trusted henchman, Renfield, arrives in a coach with Flora, a lovely young girl from the village."
mr. dtf chose dracula this time around.
such a classy man.
chili and corn bread.
it took most of my young life to finally realize that my mom made chili and corn bread every year on halloween. i guess now that i know it's a tradition i felt obligated to keep it going. and maybe it sounded amazing and i couldn't help myself. nom nom nom.
