This is the night of all souls and they don’t eat so don’t bother cooking.
My Mom never made a big meal on Halloween. She had all pickups . This is the way to go.
Tonight the menu is limited and no fuss but I will still get something into my grandchildren before the sugar rush.
Thank God for pizza, hotdogs and potatoes.
Halloween English Muffin Pizza
Six english muffins-cut in half and lightly toasted
Twelve tablespoons of tomato sauce like Prego or Ragu.
mozzarella cheese-cut into JackoLantern shapes
Place the english muffins on a baking pan.
Add the sauce and sprinkle the spices like you would add salt
Add about one teaspoon of grated cheese, maybe less, to each muffin
Top with the mozzarella shapes to make a pumpkin face
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven till the cheese melts
Mummy hot dogs
This is in every magazine and it is easy and fun to eat
One tube of crescent rolls
Lay the dough out flat and cut thin strips
Start at the bottom of the hot dog and start wrapping the dough around the hotdog. Like you were bandaging your finger .
Leave a little spot at the top for the mummies eyes.
Place on a tray and bake 350 for 18 minutes
Put two dots in the space you left open for the eyes with ketchup or mustard.
Three washed sweet potatoes
Three tablespoons of oil
3/4 teaspoon of salt
One tablespoon of brown sugar
Heat the oven to 450
Slice the potatoes into wedges
Season with the salt, sugar and one tablespoon of oil
Put the remaining oil in the pan and coat well
Add the potatoes
Bake about 15 minutes , turn once and bake till crisp
Serve with blood-red ketchup on the side, so the kids can dip.
I started having a pot of soup or chili on the stove for the adults.
Have to go cups for the parents who can’t stay, so they don’t eat their kids hotdog.
Yesterday I dipped pretzels and made meringue ghosts. Very cute but time-consuming.
Take out sounds better and better.
