The moral of the story was the importance of learning to work together, but there was also a more delicious take away. When a mummy, ghost, vampire, witch and bat work together, the reward is pumpkin pie, lots of pumpkin pie. Geoff "Chef Geoff" Ianniello visited two Victoria Elementary School classes Thursday to read the Halloween favorite "Big Pumpkin" by Erica Silverman and S.D. Schindler followed by a serving of the fall dessert. Ianniello, the operations manager for a Network for a Healthy California, didn't whip up just any ol' pumpkin pie for teachers Tomi and Tracy Scofield's special day classes, but a dessert of his own creation.

Kindergartners at Paularino Elementary got an early taste of Thanksgiving Tuesday when parent volunteers organized a Thanksgiving feast with all the fixins. There was turkey (lunch meat), cranberry sauce, rolls, vegetables, pumpkin pie and juice. The kids donned appropriate attire — pilgrim hats, bonnets and Native American headbands all made of construction paper. And of course, the 5- and 6-year-olds remembered what they were thankful for. “I’m thankful for toys and food and my mom and my dad and my home and my friends,” said Fatima Burke, her mouth covered with whipped cream from the pumpkin pie. “I’m thankful for food,” said Ryan Juncker between bites of his roll.

Here’s a weight-watching tip you don’t often hear when gorging on turkey and mashed potatoes this holiday season: Find your favorite food and have at it. But that’s partly what UCI dietitian and health educator Penny Anderson advises. “Don’t waste your calories on foods that you don’t like to eat just because they’re offered on the holidays,” Anderson said. “Take a small amount of something that you really like. Fill up on things like vegetables that are cooked fresh with maybe some herbs on them.

June Casagrande COSTA MESA -- As any dog can tell you, family is where you find it. And anywhere you find it, they know, there's reason to be thankful. For about 16 regulars of Costa Mesa's Bark Park, this spirit took shape Thursday in turkey and terriers, pumpkin pie and poodles, stuffing and schnauzers. "We all see each other so much, we're like family," said Maxi Morrison, a Newport Beach resident whose four schnauzers were star spangled with glitter at the Thanksgiving dinner for dog park die-hards.

Deirdre Newman "Are we ready?" Mayor Linda Dixon asked as she rolled up her sleeves and prepared to get down to business. The business at hand was not on a City Council agenda, though. Dixon was getting ready to serve turkey lunches at the Costa Mesa Senior Center's second annual Thanksgiving lunch Wednesday. About 200 seniors dined on traditional Thanksgiving fixings such as succulent turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. "Most of these seniors do not have their families nearby," said Aviva Goelman, executive director.

I’m back. Not the news you were hoping for, I know, but I am. How are you? I’m OK, depending on whom you ask. Everything around here looks about the same, except for the giant pumpkins. You can thank Sean Loftus for that, a proud Costa Mesa resident who organized a pumpkin-growing contest in his neighborhood and encouraged his neighbors to get out there and grow the biggest, chubbiest pumpkin thing they could. Sean provided detailed instructions and incipient pumpkin sprouts for all contestants, who had to pony up a $20 entry fee, with the pot going to the parent of the most prodigiously plump pumpkin.

Almost every kid loves to help carve the jack-o'-lantern at Halloween: digging into the squishy mush up to your elbows, pulling out the innards, saving the seeds for toasting, and consulting with the adult knife-wielder on the number of teeth, the shape of the eyes and whether it should be friendly or really scary. Finally, there is the magic of giving it life by lighting the candle and placing it on the dark porch. What does this have to do with food?

Is it possible? Could an entire year have gone by since the last extremely significant November dinner? Apparently it is, and it has, as hard as that is to believe. Yes, it is time to get that chubby little bird in the oven once again. If you don’t know the history of Thanksgiving by now, there is no more I can do for you. As far as the first T-Day goes, we have covered the where: Plymouth colony; the who: Pilgrim settlers and Indian neighbors; the what: turkeys, the wild kind, seafood by the boatload, lots of deer, loads of vegetables, fruits and nuts.

COSTA MESA — Celeste Gonzalez, 5, gasped when she opened a gift Santa Claus brought to her Saturday at the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter. The small toy — a wedding themed My Little Pony, complete with a cake, bouquet and even pony high-heels — will no doubt make her smile till long past Christmas. She anxiously waited for her mom, Patty Gonzalez, to open the plastic package on the steps of the apartment they live in at the shelter and was dazzled when she saw a pink plastic ring that fit right on her finger.

AVIVA GOELMAN With autumn nearly upon us at the Costa Mesa Senior Center, our Annual Campaign and Fundraising for the year is nearing an end.
