Happy Halloweekend! Doesn’t it feel like a long weekend? A weekend of Halloween parties and spooky delights ending with the creepiest of all holidays, Halloween! How very exciting! I don’t want to keep you ghouls very long, as I’m sure you all have a party or zombie dance to attend. So let’s start this weekend off right with an ode to graveyards and zombie’s.
Tonight’s dinner: Graveyard Casserole
We just happen to have a graveyard down the road with a full supply of grave dirt. Lucky me, there just happened to be a fresh grave crawling with maggot and worms. I figured hey, extra protein. But I was super delighted when I unearthed this hand during my dig. Dry, brittle, flesh falling off the bone. I severed one of the fingertips right off! And all the while I was wondering why I couldn’t get the phrase ”don’t bite the hand that feeds you” out of my head.
I think this graveyard casserole creeped my daughter’s out the most! They just couldn’t believe I went to the cemetary with my shovel and casserole dish. They were speechless, much like a zombie. Lots of low moaning and blank stares.
They eventually started to eat all the worms out of the dish. Well, once they realized that I just creepifyied my grandmother’s cabbage roll casserole with fried bologna strip worms and a pastry hand (thank you hand mold from the dollar store!). It took a while to convince them that those little white things weren’t maggots, just rice. I would never feed my family REAL maggots, geez. Just pretend maggots.
Enjoy your Halloweekend! There will be no creepy food over the weekend My girls are off for a sleepover and I am going to enjoy the ease of dining out. See you here on Monday!
