1. Have a happy Halloween!!!
2. Enter your Halloween recipe by November 6.

1. Happy Halloween!

Halloween is almost here and the excitement is building! Pumpkins are carved, costumes are ready to go - have you worked out what recipe to make for Halloween?

For a super fast meal to get the kids in the mood, make fish fingers, chicken fingers, or hamburger fingers, then smother them with ketchup for "bloody" fingers. Make mashed potatoes and serve up two scoops with an ice cream scoop. Add an olive to the center of each scoop of mashed potatoes and serve "creepy eyes".

Buy mini pumpkins, cut the top off and scoop out the seeds and goop. Make green Jello gelatin or chocolate pudding. Set the gelatin or pudding in the pumpkins, refrigerate, then serve.

Keep it simple and have a BLAST!
