What's for Dinner? Halloween Edition!

I love traditions, but don't currently have very many of them.  One I picked up last year from Emily, was a pumpkin themed dinner every Halloween!

Our Halloween Table!

Of course Halloween, and pumpkin dinner, aren't complete with actual pumpkins as well!

We each made a course (although there was some collaboration for each dish!)  While I understand assigning me to 'beverage' it's a difficult task on Halloween, in general pumpkin does better in non-liquid forms I think.

Salad: Spinach salad with avocado and pumpkin seed in a lime vinaigrette dressing.  Very good use of pumpkin in a still refreshing salad!

Main Course: Pumpkin Ziti  This was a big hit last year so we did it again!  Very good

Transition Dessert: Pumpkin Souffle.  This pretty much tasted like a less sweet pumpkin pie without the crust, aka AWESOME!  It was transition desert because clearly dessert was any candy the trick or treat-ers didn't sneak away with!  It didn't photograph that well...

Drink: Pumpkin Spice Martini, not a huge hit, but drinks with pumpkin not that easy to come by and not that likely to be awesome I think.  Plus, it was very pretty.

Then Candy all night! 

It was the best week ever, but Halloween is always so much fun, especially with good friends and good food.
