Food on Friday ~ Halloween I

believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see

Halloween is a little ways off yet, but I know that many of you will already have pulled your decorations out of the garage and started to put them about the place.  Anyway, if you’re going to be ready for the fright fest night, you may as well start early.

When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers; ’tis near Halloween…..

From Joy the Baker here’s a dish that you can take to the couch while you watch your favourite scary movie and wait for scary kids to come to the door.  Homemade Chili Cheese Fry Bake,  sounds deliciously easy to make.

Quick and easy sandwiches are a good idea at All Hallows Eve, and from Damn Delicious we have these Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork buns.  Actually, these would be fabulous any time you are out of doors.

Something seasonal from Ali at Gimmie Somme Oven; Healthy Pumpkin Muffins, sweetened with maple syrup, vegan, and gluten free, great with spiced rum.

To drink at Halloween, what could be better than Hot Pomegranate Cider, following this recipe from Jessica Merchant at How Sweet Eats; (How Scary Eats?).  If you really want to blow your mind, then get a bottle of Calvados and add a slug of that to each cup.

A fabulous looking and powerful sounding drink from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest; Voldemort’s Dark Serum.  There are two quite dangerous ingredients in this concoction; tequila, and sage ~ and if you don’t think sage has an incredibly powerful effect on women, then you ain’t no herbalist.

Voldemort’s Dark Serum

Here’s a collection and a half for you, from Delish Magazine Scary-Good Halloween, which has more than 100 differently scary recipes.  (Actually it’s 3 different collections including 45 Spooky Eats for a Grown-Up Halloween Party.)  From there I’ve chosen this Black Bean Pumpkin Soup from A Foodcentric Life.

darkness falls across the land

the midnight hour is close at hand

Witch Moon

Witches are women of the false and beautiful moon.

~

the spider ran, the cobweb’s gone

did you eat it when the moon was new?

I chased your cat, what do you say to that?

I’ve even broken up your broom.

I ain’t superstitious, but strange things I’ve seen

I ain’t a superstitious fellow, but you worry me.
