We usually have several teenagers drop in during Halloween trick-or-treat, but the trick's on them: we're inviting them inside for a cup of punch and cookies.
Since it's only two more days until our coffee, I thought I'd make a second ice ring.
Two apple halves (red and green) plus a handful of cranberries and lemons add color for almost no extra money.
When you have to keep things cool, why not keep things pretty, too?
Many thanks to Anna at Pleasant View Schoolhouse for sharing her Bundt pan trick!
