I asked the students at the school I am working at if everyone gets dressed up at the school for Halloween and they looked at me like I was crazy. The teachers told me that due to globalization Halloween has become pretty big here, but apparently it is considered too “western” to wear costumes to school (I’m not really sure what this means, since I thought Spain was pretty “western”, but there you go. Maybe they think it’s too North American?). In any case, my parents are in Huelva this week and I’m traveling with them this weekend (yay!), so I’m not sure if I’ll be doing anything special for Halloween, but if I do dress up, I plan on utilizing clothes I brought to be a Canadian lumberjack/Habs fan. Creative, I know.
This meatloaf is evidence that it does not take much to amuse me. Make your meatloaf look like a mummy? Yes, please!
I do, however, have an aversion to food that looks good and fun, but sacrifices flavour in the process — that doesn’t happen here. The combo of this meatloaf and pasta is warm and comforting whether in mummy shape or not! Add a veggie side and you’ve got dinner. Happy Halloween! What are you dressing up as?
