25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Meatless Monday: Sweet Pea Parmesan


One of my favorite ways to go meatless is to simply throw together pasta, parmesan, and a green veggie like peas, broccoli or asparagus tips.

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)

*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles

*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)

*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)

*1/2 C grated parmesan

*pepper to taste

*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)

Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.

Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
