Happy Halloween from Holland, where pigs don't fly, but they do come in marzipan! Yes, apparently it's a Dutch tradition related to Sinterklass and signifying good luck. Local bakeries produce rather unusual pigs made of marzipan, complete with slices, resembling pork. Guess I must have looked skeptical when viewing the pig's head display. The baker laughingly assured me, "But it's very delicious marzipan!" Uh, no thanks (although I do like marzipan - and bacon!).
Wherever you are, hope you make the most of Halloween.
My thoughts are with all those adversely affected by Superstorm Sandy, who must now begin rebuilding/adapting to a different reality. Wishing you bon courage, as the French say.
Check back tomorrow for a special treat on the blog!
