Happy (yet again) late Halloween 2016!

So, this years Halloween has come and gone, and I have to say that it was a success. We even made it into an Halloweekend and had creepy food both Saturday and Sunday.
pumporAll the food I made came out perfectly, if I can say so myself. Even though I forgot to put eyes on the small pizza mummies. You learn as you go along, right?
In the end, I ended up with a few more dishes than we really could finish. I felt so creative. Horror themed food maybe should be something I do every time I cook.

This year, my town decided that it would have a “zombie race” of sorts. You could sign up as a runner, and there were an entire course filled with different obstacles for you to get through, along with zombies that wanted your brains. You had three lives, if you managed to get through the whole thing without losing any, you were rewarded with a “survivor badge”. If you lost them all, there were an “infected badge” waiting for you. I didn’t run, but I did see that you could sign up as a zombie as well but I was to late to the party.

Also, this year I actually figured I’d hand out candy (for once) to the kids that comes by every year. But apparently kids around here has grown out of the dressing-up-phase so I refused to open. Boring kids. Thinking they can just walk up to my door with their small, greedy bags to just get candy for no effort what so ever. No way!

On top of all the epicness, instead of watching horror movies, we thought we’d play a good old horror game instead. So, we settled for the original Resident Evil for the PS1. I thought I’d post it as my Retro Weekend game, but apparently it took longer than two day to finish, (it’s longer than I thought), so that review will come up later. Overall, it is a rather intense and creepy game, so it fit perfectly. It’s actually better than I thought it’d be.

However, this year I didn’t dress up, but I did go to the “zombie race” wearing my all faithful teeth that I love so damn much. They are a really good buy and have already served me well a couple of Halloweens now, and will hopefully continue to do so.

What are you serving on Halloween?

So, Halloween is almost just around the corner, and I’m planning to do some cooking. I know I haven’t really talked about food in this blog outside the yearly Halloween posts, and then it’s seldom food mentioned there anyhow.

As I do love to cook, I have scoured the internet to find some tasty, but fitting recipes for my Halloween celebration. Most I’ve seen have been for a big party, to kiddy/candy-esque or just different creepy drinks. What I want is a spooky dinner/buffet for two, that would be perfect.

I actually found a few tips and ideas on a few sites that could be made both to a couple or a small party that is proper food rather than candy or such.

picfo0wliThe Mac-O-Lantern is a simple Mac-n-Cheese recipe, that includes ground/minced meat. It might be a bit on the cuter side but still a fun edition to the table. It can be applied to your own recipe as well.

Found this on Pinterest. Credit goes to the maker.

This mummy meatloaf, covered in bacon, is something I’ve just seen pictures of around Pinterest, but it piqued my interest nonetheless. With a regular meatloaf recipe covered in bacon, this is a perfect addition to the dinner table.indexMaybe serve this meatloaf with a couple of these Boo-tatoes. Maybe make them straight on the plate or place them in the oven for a short while to get a more crispy spook.

Another perfect thing for the table is these small mummy pizzas. Variate the topping as you like, as long as those bandages cover some of it up. Also, there is lots of other fun Halloween stuff to see on her blog as well so be sure to check it out!

I find it fun to experiment with food, and as I’m a lazy Scandinavian person, these English/American recipes most often just inspire me as I seldom follow it other than the look and/or ingredients. Mainly cause I don’t use that measure system.

On top of those recipes, I have my trusty “The Snacking Dead” cookbook that I will be looking through for any other zombielicious things to do.

Hopefully it’ll go well, and this food will be a tasty success. I’ll post a couple of pictures later on how it went. Wish me good luck!
