Well, it's that time again, boys and ghouls (which for End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza purposes means in the general vicinity of the end of the calendar month), and the absolutely fabulous Jeanne from Cooksister! has allowed me to be the hostess with the mostess for this edition. I would mention Anthony (the man who cooks over at Spiceblog), since he co-founded EoMEoTE many moons ago, but I'm not sure that he knows I'm involved yet, so I won't. I'm naughty like that.
I'm not going to lie...I'm more than a little thrilled to be hosting this time around, as it's the 1-year anniversary of the darndest little event in the history of the food-blogging internets, people! Did those wacky kids know what they were starting a year ago? I don't think so, but hundreds of posts later, from every corner of the world, scores of food bloggers who've had a great time every month are glad that they did. Be you prince(ss) or pauper, you can get your egg-and-toasty groove on with the EoMEoTE, and as The Martha says, it's a good thing. I salute them collectively (bowing, of course) with, "My liege".
Now we come to EoMEoTE#12 - The Halloween Edition, the other reason that I'm ticked pink (or blood red, to be topical). Throughout grade school, I watched the afternoon-long 'Creature Double Feature' Saturdays on Channel 56 in Boston (and slept with a crucifix over my neck, "just in case"). In 5th grade, I went trick-or-treating with a friend and dressed as a gypsy, and promptly forgot that I had worn a pair of my mother's earrings with a string of bells on them. I walked, the bells jangled, I thought someone was following us, we screamed and ran, the bells jangled harder, press repeat. Frankly, I think it's that kind of thing right there that qualifies me to host this thing.
But let's get down to brass tacks, shall we? Would you like to film your own eggy masterpiece (with the addition of toast and horror, of course) a la The Amateur Gourmet? Maybe you enjoyed EoMEoTE#10 so much that you'd like to Seuss it up some more, this time with some Poe in the mix? You could get crafty, or re-write an old tune, or even do something really horrifying (with photographic proof, natch)! The field is wide open, really, so do what you will. The end result should be:
1. You make something Halloween/horror-esque, incorporating eggs and toast (or another carb, if you must).
2. You record it pictorially and write it up, and blog about in the next week or so.
3. Send me a link to your post, and I'll get together a round-up in a timely fashion. Wait a minute, who am I kidding? This is EoMEoTE, for crying out loud! I'll do the round-up eventually, and you'll like it, nyuck, nyuck. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
