Halloween Pumpkins.

This is the Evil Pumpkin that my son carved. It went mouldy overnight and suppurated all over the hearth.

These are the nice pumpkins I saw in St George's Market.

These are strange pumpkins and gourds I saw in Canada.

Happy Halloween!

Makin' Whoopee (Pies).

Not exactly the 'Great British Bake Off.'
Halloween cakes for the weekend - wonder what Mary Berry would say?!
Oh, Yuk!

Spooky Characters.

I made these with my little grand-daughter at the weekend and we left them to dry.
Today she went home happy with her spooky characters.

Life's too short to stuff a mushroom!

Who said that?
It only took a few minutes to stuff these mushrooms with grated 'Low Low' cheese, some left over Mediterranean couscous and a chopped peppadew. Then into the oven for another few minutes.
Not sure if this Moroccan lamb tagine looks very appetising but it tasted good.
I calculated this at 17 Weightwatchers Pro Points - slightly over points for a main course - but what the hell?!

Results after drying.

Paper string and kitchen roll



Threads and fabrics definitely fade after rinsing and drying.

Results are in!

These are nice and colourful when wet and I would like them to stay like this, but I know from previous dyeing experiments they will lighten up as they dry.

Nice though.
