Mr. B and I invited a couple of our dear old ghoulish friends over for dinner last night.
As I have mentioned before, Mr. B is a home brewer so we started with some libations he made especially for this dinner party.
I wanted our guests to feel at home so I decorated with their taste in mind.
Unfortunately, a few uninvited guests showed up but, after trapping some of them, our guests didn't seem to mind. In fact, they mentioned how kind I was to offer them their favorite appetizers.
I think I made some points by cooking up a recipe I had received many years ago from a deceased family member. Nothing warms your bones quite like a Ghoulish Gumbo. Our guests gobbled it right up and asked for more!
They were such a gracious couple. They made quite a big deal of me having scarecrow teeth and bats eyes on the buffet for dessert. I made sure to give them the remainder to take home for a late night snack.
We had so much fun reminiscing about old times and even dusted off a couple of our old books to look through and laugh at past adventures.
Sadly, the evening came to an end to soon. Our guests had another engagement they had to attend to before dawn. Something about visiting an old haunt. They offered to host the next get together. They promised a frightening good time!
