What do you usually make for dinner on Halloween? It’s always such a busy night, especially if it’s a work or school night. The kids are excited to get their costumes on and dinner takes a bit of a back seat to the night. But I’d love to start making Halloween dinner more of an event. Not like a crazy, slave in the kitchen type of meal, but more of a WHAT-THE-HECK-IS-ON-MY-PLATE type of meal. Ah yes, a little bit of creative payback to torture my three little monsters (although, I’m pretty sure they’d think it was fantastic…).
I’ve gotta say, I’ve never had a go to Halloween meal plan before, but I need to start making the Halloween spaghetti that I’m linking to below! (It’s the first on the list.) It looks really simple! I’m not sure me or my husband would be able to eat it without closing our eyes, and holding our breath – at least for the first few bites – but my three year old and five year old would think it’s the greatest thing ever! I know it’s just plain old, regular ingredients, but when you put them together it sure looks creepy!
I’m a sucker when it comes to turning food into some kind of craft. So when holidays like Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day come along and there are endless possibilities of fun things you can make with food, I get pretty excited about trying some of the new ideas!
This list of Halloween food ideas has me inspired! If there were more hours in a day, I would make all of these recipes! Halloween tends to be big on sweets, but there are lots of healthy (or healthy-ish) food ideas that you can make too. From ghosts to black cats to monsters and mummies, there are tons of food possibilities, both sweet and savory!
