However! I did do one Halloweeny thing. I ate pumpkin. I bought one giant pumpkin and made lots of food out of it. I made a scrumptious pumpkin curry, but that was eaten before there was even time for photos. Trust me though, it was good.
I then used the second half of the pumpkin to make pumpkin pie. Nom nom. Here we are, one big pie and one mini-pie for the experimentation.
The thing in the middle that now looks like the Apple logo was actually meant to be a pastry pumpkin. I will also defend myself that although these pies look kind of dark and weird this is because I used muscavado sugar which is really dark. Trust me, they were tasty.Oops. Turns out pastry carving is not my strong point.
My only other Halloween indulgence was Slytherin themed nails. I bought some ‘cracking’ polish in silver and did a green behind. It is a little brighter than in these photos, but I couldn’t get the colours accurate. I quite like the general effect and I hope it is smart enough for work in the future. I do wonder what the line is with coloured nails for work. How bright can I go? I might play around with different ways of being colourful and still smart.
Anyway, I may have missed out on the full fun of Halloween, but it is Guy Fawkes Night on Saturday and I am having fireworks on matter what!
