We don't really 'do' Halloween, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun with our food.
Last year I made a 'Squished Witch' lunch which I quite liked, so thought I'd do something similar. Our witch legs this year are made from cheerios & cucumber. There's tomato sauce in the white container and cucumber stars in the orange 'pumpkin'. I always think of orange & green colour schemes for Halloween so we have some cucumber & carrot circle/stars.
I wasn't sure what to send for our sandwich today, and then Miss M said she saw some flying foxes - 'They're the same as bats, Mummy!' - so bat sandwiches I thought would be cute.
Only problem was that I don't have a bat cutter, so I improvised. The offcuts of the ham & cheese are stuffed into the sandwiches, while the bread off cuts were cut into stars and skewered with the alphabet picks. Mini shape cutters were used for the eyes & mouth with sultanas added for fun. The top layer of bread is spread with Vegemite.
Last year I also made some 'Witch in a Ditch' cupcakes which were a huge hit and I thought were a little funny, so I used that as inspiration for our snack.
Pepperoni from Walkerston Country Meats and cheese cut with mini cutters and skewered with food picks sit on top of rice crackers in a Halloween cupcake liner.
Fruit for today was rockmelon and blueberry 'eyeballs'.
I didn't take a separate photo of the 'Boo-Juice', so here's another of the eyeballs ;-)
Details of my tools & toys can be found on this page. The bat confetti and owl cupcake picks were from Big W.
