A Spooky Menu!


Every year right before Halloween, my extended family puts together a special holiday meal (I swear my kids look more forward to this than Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner) My sister did a fun menu, and my kids had a blast. A copy of her menu list is below, along with a description of each of the items ‘secret spooky’ meaning. It was way fun!

TONIGHT'S MENU!

Appetizers:
Batwings (Chicken fingers carved in the shape of wings)
Eyeballs (Deviled eggs with an olive in the middle of each one)

Main Dish:
Spookghetti with Blood Sauce (We made the noodles green with food coloring)
Ghoulsticks (Breadsticks with Salad Supreme sprinkled on them)
Skull and Crossbones (A pear half with choc chip eyes and crossed celery sticks)
Purple Slim Jello (You can make your own design here)

Drink:
Vampire blood (Any red drink, one year I put gummy worms in the ice cubes)

Dessert:
Mummy Tarts (Cupcakes decorated like mummies)

I look forward to this every year. My roommates and I (this idea all came from my roommate Abby) used to do this every year around Halloween time. It is a fun tradition that we all looked forward to and we were adults! It is even more fun to do this with kids.

Fun! I saw a recipe on Martha for punch with hands and a face floating in it. You make the hands by freezing water in gloves and the face using water frozen in a mask. It looks like a dead person is floating in the punch bowl. Freaky! You should use it when it's your turn for the party.
