ok, on to the halloween party! last friday, erin and I threw a spook fest at my parent's house. we made "lady finger" pretzels, ghostie cookies (that I forgot to take a picture of, darn it), macaroni and cheese gratin (see the recipe here on my food blog), homemade root beer, slime rickeys, green goddess dip with crudites . . . don't you wish you had been there?
I was a french kiss and david was the PERFECT nerd. I can't even tell you how happy it made me.we played the name game and mafia (and me? I just took pictures for my blog.)
the group of ladies were cute.
the group of laddies were even cuter.
then I forced everyone outside to compete in the old fashioned "donuts on a string" game - no exceptions. however, the donuts were pumpkin and caramel apple so no one could resist anyway.
I told you they were good.
it was a good time had by all (I hope). but a little too much stress for my taste. I think I'll stick to simple decorations, a host of halloween flicks and peanut butter popcorn next year.
