It's the very last day of MoFo 2012, it's Halloween, and it's the day before Dia De Los Muertos!
So much to celebrate ~ all in one fell swoop!
Today I teach two classes, one in the morning ~ and one tonight. I don't know how many people actually want to spend Halloween evening at yoga class (they said they'd be there!!), but I promised them special cookies if they came.
I found a recipe for Brownie Roll Out Cookies in my local bookstore's seasonal newsletter. I veganized it - and added some cayenne & cinnamon to make it more Mexi! I also used my super black cocoa powder for a darker, more spooky effect. This is actually my Easter Egg cookie cutter, turned upside down and repurposed as a skull cookie cutter. Mwahahaha!
My original plan was to make a whole bunch of the Dia de Los Muertos figurine cookies... but this cookie dough was a bit dry and hard to work with. Every time I lifted up the cookie cutter, the little guys would get their arms or head ripped off. After just a few, I gave up and decided to stick with Sugar Skull Cookies.
Nonetheless - I did manage to make a few of these guys... I love the fancy Mexican dresses and I especially love the mariachi suits!! Aren't they a dashing couple?? I'm going to save two for us and two for my parents... we always celebrate Halloween together with my parents - so I'll see them tonight.
I drew all of us in our imaginary Halloween costumes!Yummers is a potato! (his middle name IS potato, afterall)
Dottie is going as Big Bird. She is so goofy, we always think that we should have named her Big Bird.
Snoopy is going as Cupid, because he's Cute and stUPID. :) ha ha.
Stevie Wonder is going as a love bug, because she is a love bug.
Mr. VE&T is going as a tennis player, wearing his *actual favorite pink headband* (true story)
I don't really know what I am... a person with chipmunk ears holding a Jack O Lantern!
I also drew us all as skeletons, in case you're more Dia de los Muertos than Halloween
Bon Voyage to another fantastic MoFo Season!
