Goblins, ghouls 'n good eats
It's October ... time for tricks and plenty of treats.
Although the days are getting shorter, family activities always seem to rev up this time of year with after-school activities, weekend sporting events and Halloween, of course. With all the extra running-around, it's important to keep the gang well fed with hardy, rib-sticking entrees to maintain much needed energy for all the goings-on.

German Beef and Barley Bake is just plain delicious for weeknight or weekend dining. And it can be prepared ahead of time and reheated in a quick 20 to 30 minutes to cut down on last-minute kitchen prep. Serve this savory casserole with potato rolls and warm baked apples for dessert. It's an October treat the whole family will enjoy.
