Ideas floating around my brain


Scary, right?

So we really like to do a fun/spooky Halloween dinner...now that I'm not really allowed to Trick-or-Treat anymore, I have to make it fun for me *somehow*, right??? (c:

I like to do things that are a little bit creepy, but not outright disgusting.

Let me give you some examples:

This might taste really good, but *bleech* on the presentation:

This is just wrong (it's a dessert, btw...but the tootsie roll turds gross me out!)

I'm pretty sure I would also like to steer clear of the "Silence of the Lambs" crackers platter (I don't know if that is what it's called, but darn it if it doesn't look like that...)


Some of the things that are definitely in the running for our dinner:
Mud pie...darling

A little more gruesome, but not life-like enough to cause indigestion...

Tentacle pot pie, adorable...

I feel like someone is watching me (sorry, I just couldn't help myself!)

Pizza in all it's lovely forms is always a hit...

I think this is the one I might go with though...a little gruesome, but still good:

Meatloaf with onion fingernails with browned cheese for the texture on top!

Brilliant and easy (c:


Do you do a fun Halloween dinner?

Or am I just freaking you out right now?

Please say that I'm freaking you out because that would totally make my little creepy heart sing (c:

And I know you all are *desperate* to know who won the Halloween giveaway, right???

I am not going to lie you are freaking me out. That cheese head is disgusting who would eat that?? The mud pies and tenacle pie adorable ideas! Lets hope I don't have nightmares about that head and the meatball eyes!

Kim @ keller-creative said...

Um, I'm really grossed out. That kitty litter dessert is burned into my brain, and not in a good way.

Coley said...

haha, I think all these foods are hilarious, mostly because I made a few of them last year :) The kitty litter cake was a big hit!!

If my food looked like that I will def lose weight! This stuff is scary! Not eating today!

Jess said...

I'm in love with the meatball sandwich and pot pies! They are too cute and I'm going to "try" to recreate for Halloween. Key word is try.

spooky stuff!!

Portuguese Prepster said...

o my god hahahaha I get grossed out easily so I don't know if I could any of these besides the tentacle pie!

amy b.s. said...

oh my gosh! i am just not this creative to ever come up with something like this! how funny!

Alexa said...

Um...ditto on the tootsie turds. Ick. And that spider pizza is very creative I think. :)

Barbara@HausDesign said...

EWWW!!! Yes, some of those are pretty unappetizing - your choices look much better. :)

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

I am SO creeped out..the skull on the platter I could not look at a second time..definitely works in terms of scarey stuff but yes, you would want people to eat :)

Suzy www.savedbysuzy.blogspot.com said...

That skull cracker platter was freaky and the pumpkin soup made me feel a little ill, but the others are so fun. Definitely putting on my list of ideas for Halloween dinner.

Anne said...

hahaha - i love that you actually found pictures of all this stuff. too funny :)

The only one that doesn't make me want to barf is the tentacle pot pie!

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

I'm not going to lie, I'm a little freaked out right now :). I can't believe how freaky and gross some of those dishes are.

Make Life Pretty said...

Um, yeah...all of those look revolting except the tentacle pot pie and the mud pie. So, job well done.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Haha these are just amazing!!! And I am way freaked out! Can't wait to see what you come up with :) xoxo

emily said...

Some of those are just TOO much -- uh, the one with the tootsie rolls -- gross! But the tentacle pot pies are SUPER cute!

nancy @ {COZAMIA} said...

Aubrey what are you doing to me?! That "silence of the lambs" cracker platter?!?! not so bright and beautiful! I still enjoyed it though, haha...I do like the tentacle pot pie idea, definitely some creative stuff here!

Daydreamer said...

Nessa @{Casa Braaflat} said...

you are absolutely right. there is a fine line between cute and creepy when it comes to halloween eats. you certainly don't want to eat anything that looks too life like!

designchic said...

Oh my gosh...how fun are these...definitely saving this!!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

HAH! you are so awesome, I love all of these ideas. your kids lucked out with an ultra cool mom.

Dusty Coyote said...

Oh gross! A couple of cute ones, but mostly disgusting! The onion fingernails...eeewwwwwww. Super Creepy!!!

Cheryl said...

So, I've been walking around SO happy all day. It always feels so great to win something, and I've been wanting those skeleton hand servers to serve my own spooky Halloween meal! SO EXCITED about winning! Thanks again!

Also, just in case you want one more idea, I made these: http://canarygirl.com/?p=307 last year for a party--huge hit, I actually one the prize for "The Grossest", but it was super yummy, too. And don't try the kitty litter dessert. I made that for April Fool's and we all thought it was disgusting. Not b/c it looked like cat poop either. It just was gross.

natasha {schue love} said...

SUPER creepy ideas!! LOL! You found some humdingers! Love the worm float!

adventuresindinner said...

The kitty litter I just can't do but I had already pinned those tentacle pies as a possible.

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

OMGGGG those are hysterical!! The ham face is NASTY and the tootsie turds... HOLY cow that's believable! Hahahaha!!!!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

This was the best halloween post yet!! Even with the disgusting tootsie roll turds, pukey pumpkin and the crackers platter with that sick looking skeleton! ;)

I'm loving the sub sandwich snake and the meatball sub!
