I'm Mad I tell ya

Mad as a hatter that is! I really should be doing the futterwacken but instead I have been busy shopping for the perfect accompaniments for the tea party! I am really excited to do this one. The monsters are looking forward to all of the goodies that I will be making for the party. Plus, I did need some new pretties to display for All Hallows Eve. There will be chocolates, cookies, cakes, puddings, candies, oh and I think just a cup or two of valerian tea. After all those sweets I will need something to help me relax and enjoy the party!

I purchased a red kuri squash today. I thought it was a great decoration. Now I know that is has a great chestnut flavor and will make a great soup. Thank you oh great and powerful internet for the knowledge you have bestowed upon me. LOL! Plus once I cut it open I will be saving the seeds from this squash also. The vendor had a few other squashes but they didn't fit in with the table scape that I have in my head so I couldn't see buying them without knowing what they were. I'm not that adventurous yet.
Well, I guess that's about it for today. Nothing overly exciting!

Gotta Run,

I have never heard of kuri squash but I guess I will be looking that up, won't I? :) - and a chestnutty flavor sounds like a wonderful soup. Yum.

When should I expect my invitation to this lovely tea party? ::wink::

Sounds grand! I hope you have a good time.
