Is Halloween Over with Yet?
I swear, if I have to look at another pizza that looks like a spider web of cheese or “eyeballs” made with all kinds of different things or cupcakes that look like skulls.
Seems like every couple years the foods get a little more gross. And with the popularity of red velvet cake when you bite into some of these “treats” it’s almost like biting into real red flesh. Ewwwwwwww!
Lordy! It just doesn’t seem at all appetizing.
When I was a kid I loved Halloween – planning out my costume with my Mom’s help. Going trick or treating. Sorting out all the candy afterward and getting almost sick on too much chocolate and sugar.
Ahhhh!! Those were the days!
When I was a little older and no longer trick or treating we did this sort of haunted house thing with the front of our house with a “casket” in the front yard, ghosts dropping down and flying around and spooky sounds. We had fun making the little kids out trick or treating a little bit afraid.
But the macabre foods just don’t do it for me. I guess it makes sense because Halloween parties are a much bigger deal than years ago. Kids go to parties because they don’t trick or treat as much – and then the adults end up coming to the parties, too. So, I guess it was inevitable that creative cooks would start coming up with weird foods that reflect the spookiness of the day.
Am I just getting too old? Or, are you like me? Ready to get over all the Halloween crazies and get on with every possible way to make pumpkin and other November goodies?
