Sorry I’ve been AWOL, kittens. But I do have a very good reason–I just moved into my very own house!
The house is a work in progress. Very much a work in progress. In the second bedroom it looks a closet exploded–just clothes and clothes and clothes everywhere. And there are boxes filled with random shit in each room. I need to fix that STAT because my beloved Ohioans, Todd and Leah are staying with me next weekend. Huzzah!
But I digress.
Even though there is so much unpacking left to do at my new abode, I still took the time to make a dish for my office’s annual Halloween Pot Luck Luncheon.
I decided to make this recipe, which I posted on the DiS! Facebook page earlier this week.
It’s a good thing I picked a microwave dish because apparently the pilot light in my oven isn’t on and I have to light it. Or I have to turn on the gas. Both scenarios scare me.
Emily go boom.
The step by step photos above show the process, so I didn’t bother taking any. But here is the finished product:
Not a single bite was taken from my Jack O’Lantern salad. But I am not offended. I always have to make the decision: do I make something that people would actually want to eat, or something that I can post on the blog?
99% of the time the blog wins. Lucky you, gentle readers.
So there you have it–the first retro dish out of my new kitchen! I think it was a good one.
Here are a few other pictures of food that was actually eaten at the potluck:
I wish a very Happy Halloween to you all! I hope that you get lots of treats tonight and have so much fun it’s scary!
I am going to be in my house, with the lights off, drinking hot cider and bourbon (note to self: after work, buy cider and bourbon), watching Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and avoiding trick or treaters. I’m still knackered from the move, so this sounds like an absolutely delightful way to observe the holiday.
Plus, Fire Walk With Me is an absolutely terrifying movie.
Happy Halloween, yinz guys!
