I really must get more organised and make sure I edit my pictures and upload a post much closer to the time of the event, but here's my Halloween 2013 update at last.

Like most years I had great fun getting dressed up.

Every day last week I had some sort of Halloween themed food, such as these cute meringue ghosts, ...

I also made a pumpkin & cranberry bread, but ate it before I took a picture. I think the pumpkin rolls were my favourites. They were based on this amazing post and really easy to make. They were great with savoury soups as well as with butter and homemade strawberry jam. I made 30(!) rolls, but froze about 20 of them.

Needless to say I also carved a pumpkin, I mean it was Halloween after all - right?

As always Halloween was a great success at work, about 90%+ of people got dressed up for the day incl. myself (I think that goes without saying).

We had a Halloween themed staff lunch, where they served ghoulish beef stew with pumpkin rice and pumpkin dumplings and lollipops for desert.

We even did some apple bobbing. Guess who braved the barrel of floating spit and won first prize? Yes, that was me!
