Halloween 2011

On Oct. 29th this year we had a Halloween party and it was a good time!
I tried a few new recipes and they seemed to be a hit!

Deviled Green Goblin Eggs


1-2 dozen cherry tomatoes

flavored soft cream cheese spread

Core tomatoes with a carrot peeler or knife. Drain excess tomato juice. Using a butter knife, fill holes in tomatoes with cream cheese. Give each "pimple" a gentle squeeze and arrange on a platter.

24 oz frozen strawberries, thawed
6 oz lemonade, frozen concentrate
1 quart ginger ale
1 cup raisins
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Place the strawberries in a bowl and mash with a fork. In a large pitcher, mix the strawberry mash, lemonade and ginger ale. Place handfuls of raisins and blueberries (bugs) into tall glasses. Pour the liquid over the bugs, then sit back and watch the bugs and scum rise to the top of each glass.
To quench a creepy crowd's thirst, double or triple this recipe and serve in a punch bowl. Drape some gummy worms over the rim of your bowl for a particularly swampy-looking effect!

Of course we had chips & dip and some of the other usual party snacks but we had a great time too! :)
