This week I've been tied to my house (that's a hard thing for me)... A few days ago I looked in the mirror and found one side of my face had "frozen" - and after a trip to the doctor, he informed me that I have Bell's Palsy. Just in time for Halloween! I have to keep my left eye taped shut, and I have to drink everything holding my lips shut around a straw. I've joked with my kids & grandkids that I'm going to be a pirate for Halloween this year (aaaarrrrrggghhh!)
So. I have one good eye, and lots of downtime till this (hopefully) improves. I've pulled a few ideas I've shelved from pretty brilliant creators I've stumbled across the past few months. I've included links to the ones I could actually find.
Check them out, and hopefully I'll be back in the kitchen shortly...
|Veggie Halloween Skeleton|
Great way to get your goblins to eat something healthy...
|Pumpkin Rice Krispy Treats|
(Love the Tootsie Roll stem!)
|Donut Hole, Nutella (or canned chocolate frosting), |
stick pretzel, and chocolate sprinkles (or chopped nuts)
|Pumpkin Roll-ups - (easy & healthier than candy)|
Made from sundried tomato wraps, cream cheese, & cilantro.
|Owl & Spider Krispies|
I loved this idea - and they are made from
Cocoa Krispies (a great 'Halloween cereal')
Just add eyes from M&M's & halved marshmallows.
(keep a healthy alternative for all the sugar in your arsenal)
Spook them from the minute they get up!
(no link available - but this is pretty straightforward.
Cut slices of mozzarella into ghost shapes & dot with olive eyes)
|Ending with a little Halloween humor...|
Make them look twice before they flush.
