Cutesie Wootsie Stressless Halloween Bash
Now that the little ones in our family are old enough to know what Halloween is all about, we figured it was time to cut the strings on the themed out Halloween parties of days gone by. We grown-ups had our chance to live it up. This year, there would be no Jetsons, goombas or Mad Hatters. This year was all about what makes kids go "ooooooh" or "yuk!"
The menu included amazingly simple kid-friendly Halloween foods. Mini "pumpkin" jellos, graveyard puddings, morbidly delicious rotting-mouth apple things (what are they called?), coconut-covered banana "ghosts", cotton candy, mummy hot dogs and a nut-&-dairy-free snack mix. It took about an hour to make everything, and that includes pudding made from scratch because of a dairy allergy. Imagine if it had been pudding cups? As in, instant?! This would have been a quick and dirty party for the Clem' record books.
Be back soon with more happy-go-lucky goodness!
