Spooky Dinner

There are those who claim to hate Halloween, and to be honest I can understand why they might feel that way. There are parts of the holiday I'm not terribly fond of myself.

But we've worked to make Halloween fun at our house. Perhaps it helps that we have two little girls who dress up as puppies and kitties instead of some kind of undead creature. About the only thing that really causes problems around here is the candy - the girls don't hold their sugar well, and artificial colors have a Jekyll and Hyde effect on them.

One thing we have done through the years is to have a Spooky Dinner for Halloween. This year Kara will be in Dallas on the 31st, so we had our Spooky Dinner tonight.

We had Vampire Apples and Shepherd's Brain Pie. By pumpkinlight, of course.

Your Shepherds Brain Pie looks a little too realistic, if the wrong color. I'm in my husband's hospital room and a big ol' eeewwww came out of my mouth. The nurse walked in right then and wanted to know what scary movie we were watching.

Thanks for the laugh, and the idea. I like it! I think next year we'll invite the nephews and nieces and do a scary dinner. I really like that idea.

Nothing like a little potato-and-cheese puree piped through a plastic bag to gross people out, I guess.

Glad you enjoyed the pictures. My favorite from years past was the Monster Fingers - bread sticks with knuckles scratched in and a bit of pepperoni for a fingernail. I think we should try those again next year.
