We were so happy to have a full house on Friday evening for our Halloween / Castanyada / Housewarming party. We were finally able to inaugerate our new home, and at the same time we got to show off our Barack O’Lantern and enjoy some roasted chestnuts and sweet potatoes for the castanyada. I love that we can celebrate the two holidays together and enjoy American and Catalan culture all in the same weekend!
Thanks to all our friends who attended, and special thanks to Albert for providing the AlmogÃ vers and to Gail for the jello shot recipe! Both were extremely well received. Now if that’s not cultural fusion, I don’t know what is.
