last post that we wouldn't be having a party this year, i couldn't help myself & at the last minute put out the call that we would have an impromptu halloween thing. after all, i had all the awesome decorations sent from vivi in new orleans to use. best of all was the huge cobweb that we stretched over the front verandah and which looked really creepy in the wind. oh yeah and i still have to take that down before the neighbours call the council. so, back to the pumpkin pie.. a friend declared it a 10 out of 10 hit. who knew that pumpkin pie was a sweet, delicious, caramel, slightly spicy version of a custard tart? the talented kingsley made the jack-o-lantern & we used his brains to make the pie. gory.
