Gourmand Party

Last night was the Gourmand/Murder Mystery party at Guy Dedd-Tour and Miss Di Wreckted's Spooky Castle. What fun we had. Everyone dressed up and really got into their characters.
Di did a WONDERFUL job on the organization, decorations, and food planning. It was pretty much non-stop hilarity from start to finish.
Here is a serving of the Death By Chocolate cake. I got some creepy labels at the Halloween store, and put one that said "Blood" on the bottle that held the raspberry sauce. That was fun pouring a little on each plate while everyone watched. The bones should have been a lot bigger for maximum effect, but it tasted good and that's what counts. I think I might make this cake again sometime; it was that good.

Blondie,
I'm sorry I didn't get a photo of every course, but they were all delicious! We started with Wormy Onion Soup, moved on to Dungeon-ess Crab Salad, then had Beef Boo-ginion, and finally Death by Chocolate. It was all great fun.
