Boo-tiful Food

Tessa and I have been busy getting ready for our First Annual Hallween Costume Party.  If you can make it, let me know and I'll get you the address and directions.  We're super excited and can't wait to see everyone there in their finest costumed attire!!! 

Additionally, I'm thinking about having a few people over to carve pumpkins this weekend.  I went searching for ideas for some festive Halloween fare.  As usual, I was inspired (and overwhelmed) by all the creative people out there.  Here are some of my favorites:

Spaghetti is cheap and easy and can feed a huge crowd.  I really like this idea from Jeane Benedict:

I also love these Witch's Hat Calzones from Better Homes and Gardens (Spotted on Gordon Gossip).

Also spotted on Gordon Gossip and originally from Food Network were these Vampire Blood Tomato Soup Test Tubes and Ghost Sandwiches

These two creations, Deadman's Meatloaf and Skeleton Dip, were found on Munchkins and Mayhem.  I may just have to try my first meatloaf (a scary thought in and of itself..).

This fun food is from Picky Palate:

Breadstick Mummy Dogs

Bug-apillar Banana Dude

Oozing Monster Apple Mouths

These Meatall Spiders and Mashed Potato Ghosts are available from Schwan's.

Finally, Martha always has something to add to any festive buffet:

Devilish Eggs and Spicy Bat Wings

Finally, we are planning to continue our tradition and make homemade rootbeer and potato doughnuts!!  I love the holidays.  Sigh...
