Dishes for Halloween party
I'm planning a party for Halloween, and am looking for suggestions. So far, I have:
Black Halloween punch (with floating ice hand)
Roasted pumpkin soup (pumpkin soup baked in the pumpkin itself)
Crescent Mummies (hot dogs wrapped in store-bought crescent rolls)
Baked rats (individual meatloaves shaped like rats, with spaghetti noodle tails)
"Devil"led eggs (devilled eggs made to look like eyeballs)
Does anyone have any other suggestions? This party is going to be for at least 7, and must maintain at least some decorum. I'm especially looking for a vegetable.
Roasted Brains with broken bones -- roasted brussel sprouts with chopped nuts
Bloody Brains -- spaghetti squash with a tomato caponata
Bloody Brains 2 -- cauliflower head steamed with a beet red vinegarette
Creamed Eyeballs -- creamed pearl onions
Ghosts -- mashed cauliflower with a bit of cream cheese and roasted garlic, piped into 2 part mounds to resemble ghosts (body and head), then broil and use peppercorns for eyes
i saw some cute "witches hats" made with hershey' kisses. http://www.hersheys.com/recipes/8017/Witch's-Hat-Cookies.aspx
and for some reason, martha stewart living always does a lot for halloween! check out her website.
last year i started a thread on fun halloween stuff. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/737523
I really wish I hadn't seen this site. Today got about 2 dozen handpicked, gorgeous apple tree twigs from an organic-pesticide free nursery by me. I'll brush them later on with warm, mild soap water and let them dry before I start making my black candied apples.
Now I have to stop thinking about the black goblets I fell in love with towards the bottom of the page. What's a girl to do.
