Spooky Dinner

Halloween came and went without our traditional chili and breadsticks.  We opted for a quick and easy take out dinner from the BBQ shack down the road on Halloween night because Grandma and Grandpa hadn't eaten fried green tomatoes yet on this trip.  While we all enjoyed the tomatoes, we (ahem, Dean) were really craving some Halloween chili so we opted for a spooky feast two days later.

Grandma JoJo brought her homemade caramel recipe.  Sweetened condensed milk, Karo syrup and butter.  It is SO good.  Then, you add a layer of melted white chocolate and dust with cinnamon and sugar.  A little labor intensive, but so delicious.

What spooky dinner would be complete without pumpkin head cookies and roasted seeds.  I tried a new thing this year and boiled the seeds in salt water for 10 minutes before roasting.  Usually I find myself eating the seeds well into the next week, but these were gobbled up.  The boys even requested them in their lunches.

Brains, anyone?

Or maybe you prefer witches brew and bones for dipping with a glass of vampire's blood to drink?

Spooky meals, definitely a delicious tradition worth keeping.
