Halloween foods - Ghost salad, Black cat oreos, Punch
Mostly I stuck to favourite (ie easy) recipes. She also made the Halloween corner with some of her Halloween stuff. E's contribution to the sweets was a packet of Vampire Fancies. My mum made scones and Kerin brought drinks (including some very nice herbal tea). She also did a fine joy of arranging the ghost salad as I chopped veggies at the last moment. As well as sausage rolls, we also served some chips, rice crackers, hummus and leftover pizza.
kids punch to an orange punch that she had seen in a Halloween recipe magazine. I was quite pleased we could move the shelves around to fit the cactus in the fridge.
I am sending the ghost salad to the very final month of Eat Your Greens. Thanks to Shaheen of Allotment to Kitchen and The VegHog who have cheerfully helped us share so many lovely green dishes. I will also send it to Deb who continues to share soups, salads and sammies on Souper Sundays.

Green vegetables - we used spinach, sugar snap peas, celery, green capsicum, and cucumber
2 generous spoonfuls of tzatziki
1 ghost platter
2 small bowls
Place small bowls where the eyes would be on the ghost platter. Dollop two good spoonfuls of tzatziki to fill the little bowls and top with a radish in each bowl. Arrange green vegetables around it. (If you don't have a ghost platter, you could use vegetables to make the outlines of a ghost on a large platter or chopping board.)
Black Cat Oreos
1 packet of Oreos
Dark chocolate chips
Chocolate buttercream icing
Black edible pen
Use edible pen to draw a vertical line on each large MandM. Use chocolate icing to attach 2 large MandMs (matching colours of either green or yellow) as the eyes, a mini red MandM as the nose and two choc chips as ears on an Oreo. Repeat with other Oreos.
Orange punch with spiders
4 cups fanta
4 cups soda water
2 cups tropical juice
2 cups orange juice
fruit salad, mint, lemon slices to garnish
plastic spiders in ice blocks
[Create plastic spiders in ice blocks the night before - I had to use mini muffins silicone moulds because my spiders were too big for the regular ice blocks.) Mix all drinks. Garnish with fruit salad, mint, lemon slices and spiders in ice blocks.
