The 28th October finally came, and Grahame & Green did Halloween!
|The broom... sorry, breadsticks!|
|Arthur (And(y)i for the evening) was our best starter yet!|
|He had only one request...|
The full buffet menu was: Andi-Pasti, assorted condiments and breads, Spicy Guacamole, Mozzarella Balls in a Pesto dressing, Marchengo-stuffed Red Peppers, Sweet & Sour Chorizo, Vegan Lasagne, Sweet Potato mashed with Soy Sauce, Mango Chutney, Coriander and Chilli, Salad, Butternut Squash & Cranberry Soup and Chilli, Fruit and Nut Rocky Road for dessert.
|Butternut Squash soup served in lab beakers, and served in vintage spice jars with a straw|
|Giant Snotballs... blame the 10yr old! Or mozzarella in a homemade pesto dressing|
|Orge's Toes, or stuffed red peppers|
Cooking and serving in a Victorian jacket (it was the two layers of boning!) was not an option, so I essentially spent the evening in my underwear (on the top half at least!)... and I particularly loved the contrast with my Naked Cowboys Temptapron ;o)
Finally, fully decked out in my Victorian finery! I never got my wig (customs... bah humbug!) but a last minute panic of feathers and a headband did the trick. Not the Halloween "costume" I had in mind, but suitably Victorian at least - thanks to the 10yr old and her best friend, H.
|Who also "put their hand" to the boyf's costume... clever girls!|
Megs did so well... she was the perfect Bat-Dobe and didn't even chew her wings!
Everyone looked amazing, the drink flowed and the food went down a treat. A grand night was had by all, and then we all went to the pub...!
