Do you have a traditional Halloween dinner? Meal in a pumpkin? I've never had it, but I'd probably like it. My husband, however, would rather die... So, I've been trying to come up with something special to serve on All Hallow's Eve. Imagine, a dinner party. Outside. Haunting! And luckily for us Arizonans, we won't freeze to death. Instead, we get to pretend that the infinitesimal hint of a chill means it's getting cold soon. Which makes us feel like it might be Fall after all ;)
Now for the food. Brace yourselves! Braised beef short ribs. Butternut squash ravioli in a browned butter sage sauce. Spinach salad with a warm bacon dressing. And dark, pumpernickel bread to soak up all the goodness with. Pair it with a spiced apple cider, and then tell me you're not feeling the twitchings of bewitchings!
Your turn! What has your taste buds spooked? *B
