It was a pretty good All Hallow's Eve here at Roseholme Cottage, with a steady stream of very young Trick-or-treater's in full and fanciful costume -- and their slightly older siblings making only the least nod to dressing up.
We started the evening with three full bags of candy and ended with one (1) piece left; handed it out from a big colander and after I got home, I restrung Stingray's colander mask and wore it to do the handing out.
...As for Halloween stew, it was what I had for lunch today (and supper Sunday), improvised from what was in the cupboard: quinoa cooked in chicken broth, sprouted lentils, chickpeas, a crumbled strip of bacon, a little fresh celery and carrot and nice chunks of spam.But you could be forgiven for thinking it was tiny worms, lumps of long pig and assorted mysterious innards, the way most people seemed to. (Even Tam found it a bit much. I guess quinoa is an acquired taste, mild though it is).
