I have to make snacks for the Boy-child’s school Halloween party next week. And me being me, I want them to be gross. Fun. But Gross above all.
Problem is, the only ideas I’ve seen are for diddly-flippin’-squat for H’ween fun food, the new thing is geeking about spending 5 minutes to decorate the top of a cupcake to look like a vampire (while the adults think it’s ‘cute’, the kids don’t care, they just eat the frosting and throw the rest away).
So far the idea bin is limited to:
** Cupcakes with orange frosting and plastic spiders
** “Witches fingers”, made by cutting knuckle-lines in a string cheese and cutting a green fingernail from a pepper and sticking it on the end
** “Brains”…red jello with fruit inside
** Black and orange tortilla chips and ‘bloody’ salsa
FAAAACK. I’m not motivated by ANY of these. I need help, people! Pretend you’re eight years old. What would make you go home from your school Halloween party and tell yer mom, “We had the grossest thing at the party today…it was SO COOL!” (Or whatever the kids say nowadays.)
Short of feeding the little waifs REAL calves brains, I mean.
