How about those eggs? (ba da boom!) (The Nightmare - John Henry Fusili (1741-1825)
In the kitchen
I saw a Spicey, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held egg and toast in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: "Is it good, Spice?"
"It is tasty-tasty," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is cheap,
And because I started this whole damn thing."
(with heartfelt apologies to Stephen Crane)
Well, folks, it's time for another very late EoMEoTE round-up, this time for my ill-fated Halloween edition. With a final tally of a mere six participants, with two of them co-founders of this whole shebang, it's now official that I will never beg, plead and cajole to host someone else's event ever again. Too scary! I offer my most humble apologies to Jeanne and Anthony, with a sincere hope that their baby recovers this month and gets back to its customary growth spurt!
The lovely Jennifer, over at Taste Everything Once, made fabulously creepy deviled eggs, and pan de muertos to DIE for (sorry!). Our friend Elizabeth, from Blog From Our Kitchen, shared some memories from Halloween days of yore, while super-spicey Anthony, our man that cooks down under (or our man down under that cooks?), did an homage to Wicker Man that was scarier than the original, frankly. Everyone's favourite (and funniest) sister, Jeanne, slipped into a night of the living bread, while talented Sarah, at The Delicious Life, tricked AND treated with a gorgeous curried "egg" salad. And lastly, but never leastly, Stephanie (the hostess-with-much-more-mostess-than-me over at Dispensing Happiness) whipped up a wicked pissa eggy skull.
My thanks to everyone who participated! I'm really looking forward to finding out what Jeanne's got in store next, because I know it's going to be great.
UPDATE 20 NOVEMBER: Oh, good God, just let a crater swallow me up now. I actually left out two lovely, sweet bloggers from my round-up! Sincere apologies to both Andrew, from Spittoon (who may have had the scariest experience of everyone), and Brenda, of Culinary Fool (whose entry may be the loveliest)...thanks for sending me such lovely reminders!
