Halloween is on the way and I'd like to set my tables with tongue-in-cheek dishes for the guys and ghouls coming to celebrate the night. A selection of cheeses is a blasphemous pun waiting to happen, but other than devil's food, deviled eggs and a recipe for "gravelox," I haven't many other ideas. Any wits out there care to pick up my slack?
well on the devil tack
pumpernickel bread (from the German make's "nick" (aka Old Nick the devil) fart
As for the cheese plate if you can find it you have to incude Boulette d'avenses ( a French cheese) sice it's local nickname is "le suppositore du diable" (due to the hot paprika on the surface)
Witches Fingers - shortbread shaped like fingers with a sliced almond for a fingernail
Bloody Brains - spaghetti or spaghetti squash with tomato-based sauce
Mummies (Pigs in Blankets)
Marshmonsters (s'mores... dip the graham crackers in melted white chocolate tinted with orange food coloring)
The cutest site with pictures of carving foods to look scary... Love the bread carved like a face, with a knife in the mouth...
