I love Halloween...can't you tell?

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble (or something like that!)... All I know is I've been plotting and planning my Halloween menu for my annual and most likely last monster bash. But that's not why I'm here. I'm here to share my goody list with you all!!!! Some of the recipes you may already be familiar with but rest assured I've given them some twists of my own. All of the items I serve are named and displayed using a variety of vessels in very creative ways. NOTHING says creepy food like the right presentation! So without further is my

Ok..that's all I have time for. If any of you want to know more about how to present, prepare or get recipes for anything on this menu and can't wait for the party pics, (I promise to post them BEFORE Halloween since my party would have happened by then) please drop me a note or comment and I will be glad to elaborate on ways to creatively serve up a super spooky and gruesome table of gross but delicious food for your guests to ooohhh and ahhhhh over! Making you the king or queen of your party for sure!

CraZy is as CraZy does...

and so it goes.... I have begun my pre-pre-pre preparations for Halloween and I'm still looking for some tips and suggestions...but in the meantime...I've been coming up with some of my very own clever ideas and thought I'd share...

Last year, I made rats out of meatloaf. They looked spook-ta-cular and everyone cringed at the treat only to find it extra tasty. They are easy to make. If you want to know how to make this or anything else I talk about, drop me a note, I'll tell ya!

This year however, I am going to give my meatloaf a twist! I am going to cut bone and cat shaped pieces out of the meatloaf and serve on a platter around a big ole'talking rat. It's a sneaky surprise as this rat scolds my guests when they reach for a bite of this delight!

Another clever idea I've used over the years and will expand on this year is my "Crying Margarita Head" Long ago, I purchased a zoombie head with neck that sits in it's own bowl and was meant to pour out fake blood from it's eye's, ears and nose. Instead, I make my favorite margarita mix and it cry's drinks for all my guests to indulge in! A scary but tempting surprise!
This year, in addition to this favorite, I will be serving "intestines" out of a plastic skeleton. A conversation piece for sure!

Ok...back to scheming and planning I go. If you're interested, I will be posting up pictures as I go along. Two weeks or so from today, we begin to build...muahahahahahaha!
