|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.
