I started yesterday morning by devouring a few thick slices of Pan de Muerto with my morning coffee. If you haven't had this treat, imagine an airy Portuguese bread topped with an orange powdered sugar. It's a thing of beauty. But as I stuffed it into my mouth I paused and realized, "D'oh! It's already Halloween."
If the hallowed day caught you by surprise yesterday too, maybe you can make up for it today with a impromptu Dia de Los Muertos celebration. Fridays are better for parties anyway. Here are some tips and recipes to help you celebrate tonight.
