A Tasty Halloween.

by Julie Fletcher

Hey, Halloween is tomorrow! What are YOU doing?

I’m getting the kids ready, looking for candy, and trying to decide if we’re going to dress the dog up. I also found a ton of Halloween decorations for 50% off retail, so I went a little crazy. The ront of the house looks like some sort of graveyard/crypt.

The best way I’ve found for decorating is to start my decoration shopping when the sales hit, then to continue shopping until everything is gone. That way, next year there is a huge box of things to choose from, all still brand new and at a fraction of the original cost. We also found some grea fabric for a dollar a yard, gauzy white and some black net. We enclosed the porch with the black, with the entryway open and strips of the fabric hanging down. Lights can go around your door, roof, windows, or bushes. With the white fabric, my two girls want to be ghosts. Talk about a cheap way to get out of costume purchases!

For tomorrow, it’s going to be a total grossfest around the kitchen. Moldy Breakfast Pizza will start it all off, lunch will be Monster Eyes, and supper will be a tasty concoction of Maggoty Mess. What kid wouldn’t be happy as a ghoul could be?

All of these recipes are easy and tasty. If you have just a few items on hand, you can make all of them.

Moldy Breakfast Pizza
Some breakfast sausage, crumbled.
Cheese for melting
Tomato, chopped
Parmesan cheese
Green food coloring

Use one egg for each slice of toast. Scramble with crumbled bacon or sausage and tomato. Place on warm, buttered toast, top with your child’s favorite cheese. Allow the cheese to melt. Mix a drop of green food coloring with the parmesan, try to get a nice mold color. Sprinkle the ‘mold’ on top of the pizz, then serve.

Monster EyesMake deviled eggs according to your favorite recipe. Pop one half of a pimento stuffed olive into the middle of the deviled egg. Serve.

Maggoty MessMaggoty Mess can be made quite easily. You can follow your favorite recipe for beef stew, then right before serving, add in cooked Orzo pasta. The pasta looks just like maggots!
