This day is celebrated in
as the day Gay Fawkes attempted to replace the Protestant monarch with a
Catholic one, he failed. Now England
has a Thanksgiving and 4th of July style fireworks, celebrating this
plot gone wrong. Casa W decided to participate this year in the strange event. We
were motivated by food, fire and spirits. England

I guess the poor man had it coming but I can’t help but wonder what a Catholic monarch would look like in this day and age.

We had a great DIY burn Guy Fawkes Sparklers. The husband loved these. He wanted to take the extra Guy Fawkes to work along with our favorite rustic English cake “Parkin”. At Casa W we’re big fans of oats and apples so Parkin is a natural fit as a sweet treat. Recipe. Along with the Parkin we had Butternut Squash soup with Chicken Apple Sausage in it, Organic Peas and Williams Sonoma Baked Apples avec walnuts-yummy. I of course had to have my cinnamon hot apple cider.
