Spooky Tuesday!


Happy Halloween!



Will you be at the
Blog Halloween Party?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you going to a Halloween party and need to take some treats?
These are fun and quick.



The Orange Jack-O'-Lanterns are simple.
Carve out a pumpkin design on an orange,

and fill with either sorbet, pudding or yogurt.

The SpiderWeb Eggs are really cute! Boil eggs with a few blueberries.
Then you tap the boiled egg on one side with a wooden spoon,
and return to medium heat with the blueberry water.
The blueberries will stain the egg through the cracked eggshell
thereby making this spider web pattern! (no aftertaste)


What will you do? Well, whether you stay at home, or go out to a spooky party, have a fun Halloween!



Happy Halloween Blog Party!



...and the Boo-tini is on me! ;)

Yeah baby! Great story. I liked that one...makes you think!
The eggs are similar to Scotch eggs, made with tea. I bet they taste yum-O!
Happy Halloween, and thanks for coming to the party!

I'm stopping by while trying to leave comments on as many NaBloPoMo blogs as possible.

You can find more information about the commenting challenge and even join the group here. :)

That is a creepy story, even if it does have a little bit of a lore feeling to it. I think I'd be right spooked if it happened to me! ;)

Is that a real ghost story? Or one of those campfire ones? Pretty good one, either way.

Just wandering in late from the party, yesterday was crazy busy.

And all those Halloween treats look so cute and fun. We even have some oranges here... who cares if it's November, I might carve 'em up anyway!
