Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. But things have been busy the last few weeks, and I haven’t had time for any Halloween-themed cooking.
Thanks to Dave’s mom, though, I’m still able to leave you with some creepy culinary inspiration. We got into the spirit with some SPOOOghetti and meatballs, and garlic bread with extra garlic to ward off the vampires. You really can’t be too careful these days with this whole Twilight/True Blood/Vampire Diaries craze.
Then we feasted on this brain with some fava beans and a nice bottle of Chianti.
Relax, it’s just jello.
And these cookies were really finger-licking good …
Then it was pumpkin-carving time.
I took my inspiration from this terrifying creature:
Unfortunately, my thoughtful homage drew nothing more than a blank stare from said creature …
That’s OK. The rest of us got a kick out of the spoooooooky lineup.
