What a Spook-tacular Family Dinner!

I am not a fan of the everyday "what's for dinner tonight?" cooking, but I really do enjoy planning and executing fantastic meals for special events and holidays.  One of my most favorite is Thanksgiving.  Yes, it's a lot of work, but I enjoy having all of my extended family members come over and enjoy a really good meal.  Another favorite is Halloween.  I know not too many people get into the festivities beyond trick-or-treating, but I enjoy making it fun.  Tonight, I made my family a Halloween-themed dinner.

On the menu was...

Leg of Man w/ Roast Lacerations
(a.k.a. lamb w/ fire roasted peppers)

Ghostly Rice Pilaf

"I See You!" Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

Monster Finger bread sticks

Spider Web Nachos and Chips

Blood-n-Guts Baked Brie w/ Toasted Baguette slices

Slimy Swamp Juice w/ skull-shaped ice cubes

Everything was delicious!  I particularly enjoyed the baked brie - went back for seconds.  Now, I just have to deck the house so I can greet my trick-or-treaters Wednesday evening.  However you choose to celebrate, have a fun and safe Halloween.

Be blessed!



  1. Wow this all looks great and how fun! I've never been to anything like that! You have some lucky friends and family!

    1. Thank you so much, Myra. It was fun and I think my family was impressed...they took out their phones and started snapping pictures before digging in...oh, and they thought everything was tasty, too. It was fun!

      Now, I have to get cracking on my "Carnival of Skirts" submissions...deadling is in 3 days...YIKES!!
