Black and Gold Halloween Tablescape

I love Halloween. I love the costumes, the candy, the colors, the skeletons and skulls and the parties! Halloween parties are so special and there are a million ways to dress them up. You can have classy parties, not so classy ones, and kid parties. But the essentials are the same - you have to have candy, you need pumpkins in some shape or form and some element of spookiness.

Smoked Tea Eggs Recipe

 Lapsong souchong is a very polarizing tea. Some people love it and the others hate. I fall in the latter camp - I detest lapsong souchong. It is not tea, it is liquified BBQ. But as a tea drinker I have accumulated a lot more lapsong souchong than I want. But as a rule - I don't throw any tea away, especially if its from Bellocq. So, what do I do with all this horrible lapsong souchong? Make authentic smoked tea eggs!
