Another successful Thanksoween

I’m not sure how we measure a successful Thanksoween–we all had a great time and are already tossing around plans for next year, so I guess that’s a success.

If you’re not a regular blog reader, my family has made up our own holiday–we get together every year between Halloween and Thanksgiving, and we call it Thanksoween.  We make gross-sounding (and sometimes looking) food and we put on costumes and have lots of fun hanging out together.

This year we actually did a Thanksgiving-style meal as well, as a nod to the “Thanks” portion of Thanksoween. That probably won’t be a regular addition, though.  The food was great, but sometimes it’s just more fun to make fingers and eyeballs and worms and things like that. :)

This year one of the highlights was an eyeball contest. (Edible eyeballs–the contest was a combination of realism and taste.) This was my entry.

I actually thought I had first-prize in the bag. . . until I saw all the other entries.  Let me just say that my family takes its food very seriously. :) My eyeballs actually came in second to last.

It was a wonderful weekend with family, though, and I am already looking forward to next year.
