It’s so mild today, it’s hard to remember it is the last day of October. We went cycling in t-shirts, and had tea with the back door open – which is all the better for hearing the excited kids coming trick or treating. We always take part, and have a revolting dinner ourselves.
This year we had mouldy bread and maggot sarnies (himself made blue bread, the maggots= prawns), snails (pesto pinwheels), witches’ fingers (sausages and cashews) purple slime and spiders (beetroot hummus and black olive spiders), devilled mushrooms, mouse droppings ( chocolate rice crispie cakes), mini toffee apples, pumpkin pie, and coffee and bat biscuits to finish. Suffice to say we have a lot of leftovers.
That was a lot of fun to put together, and I tried a few new recipes – beetroot hummus is lovely, but making mini toffee apples was very distracting as we diverted into sugar work with the leftover toffee.
A nice family meal, and a standard evening of himself opening the door with the trick knife in head, as you do.
