So we don't really celebrate Halloween per say down this way but yesterday AWW YEAH MOTHERFUCKING HALLOWEEN MKR
We carved jungle pumpkins (had to get some from my uncle, because the ones we initally found were like tiny decorative pumpkins. Put it this way they weren't meant to be as we dont have
tiny decorative pumpkins growing here it's just been really dry lmao
), hung up like two decorations (one of which was this hilarious skeleton thing that when you hit it its eyes would light up and it would scream but i swear to god the scream was made of like opera singing or something XDD) and threw pumpkin confetti on the table.
Mother cooked singlehandedly again and we had no idea what she was making but it all turned out quite delightfully gruesome (dad was like "don't make them too gross...people eat with their eyes too" and she was like "IT'S HALLOWEEN I DO WHAT I WANT." I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist of it lol). ALSO SHE BOUGHT US FRIGGING MATCHING HALLOWEEN T-SHIRTS THAT WE HAD TO WEAR I DON'T EVEN KNOW
. I MEAN SHE DOESN'T EVEN BUY US MATCHING XMAS SHIRTS (thank god) WHICH IS A HOLIDAY WE MAJORLY CELEBRATE BUT SHE'LL BUY RANDOM ASS HALLOWEEN ONES FFFT MOTHER WHY.
I also borrowed my aunty's pot which looks like a cauldron for the soup, which was quite funny in itself because i just kind of walked into her house and she was asleep dont worry this type of borrowing is normal in our families everyone gets their stuff back later
. So when she came over for dinner she saw the pot and was like "wow that looks just like my pot" and we were all like "YES FUNNY THAT. ACTUALLY WE HAVE SOMETHING TO TELL YOU."
Anyway here was the menu AND PICTURES BECAUSE MEALS LIKE THIS MAKE ME SO HAPPY
• Curried pumpkin soup with butter and chilli roasted pumpkin seeds • Egg and guacamole "eyes" • Pumpkin rice with some kind of tomato Portuguese chicken maryland • Coconut panacotta with kiwi fruit and sultana "eyes" they totally dont look like eyes when you put two together though hahah
