This evening a few friends and I had a Hocus Pocus Night. Think of it as a Halloween pre-game. It all came about because we were reminiscing about a childhood Halloween movie favorite: Hocus Pocus.
We decided on my house for the venue (it looks like Halloween year-round I'm told) and we quickly whipped up some extra decorations from the Halloween storage bin, and concocted some delicious Halloween dinner.
Locksley helped decorate.
The table was set!
Dinner included: roasted pumpkin and shallots, wild rice, pumpernickle bread with goat cheese, spinach salad with pumpkin seed oil and apple cider vinegar dressing.
And wine, of course. Plus pumpkin beer and hard cider.
And for desert: spice cake with buttercream frosting.
The company was excellent, the food was delicious, the mood was seasonal and the movie was everything I remembered it to be.
