Dessert with Skulls

We devoured a skull whose eye sockets were jammed with crimson… pomegranate seeds. The Little Princess ate an eye socket, my in-laws split half of the upper and lower jaw, and my Piano Man and I shared one side of the brain. It was delicious… how it grinned at us the whole time. I was supposed to save the other side of the brain for The Boy, but… my teeth betrayed my sense of giving. I might’ve eaten the remaining eye socket, too. I must bake another skull for The Boy.

replace ¼ of the required water with Baileys Irish Cream Caramel)

there was a game of Sorry! (my Piano Man was not sorry at all)
*by the way, we had pumpkin chili for dinner*.

Hm… the remnants of the missing pomegranate seeds
give the plate an interestingly-reddish look, don’t you think?

This is our traditional Halloween dinner. But we had it a week ago, in order to share it with my in-laws. What are you cooking today, my Wicked Luvs? Are you going to send me a wee bit? You should… particularly, if the meal grins at you while you eat it. Muahahaha— *cough* ha!

…a wee note…
If you have a minute or three, fly over to Poems United… to read “Poems for a Witchy Hallowe’en”—poetry and a wee bit of conversation by Sherry, Rosemary and moi.

Pumpkin Chili, Laughter, Masks and Skull Mayhem

The last few days have been a delicious blur. I did some Halloween decorating, dreamed about my little brother at least thrice… such wonderful dreams that burst with laughter and familiar mayhem. I danced, cooked and shared great food with family and friends. My urban witchy garden fully embraced the season. The pain squatting in my flesh and bones wasn’t a bastard at all. I ate meat and I didn’t get sick (I used one of the three to five diet cheating days I allow myself every year); there is some discomfort, but no intense tummy pain. And the night of All Hallows’ Eve was quite perfect. Here is the visual tale:
