Halloween Dinner (Monster Cafe)

 This year for our Halloween Dinner, I made a whole menu of spooky dishes.  Inspired by the Easy and Fun Monster Meal that chicken babies linked up to our Halloween Party (and I featured in this Five Fun Ideas post), I had several different foods each with a gruesome twist.  It was spur-of-the-moment, but super easy ~ I did the whole thing (shopping and all) in just a couple hours in the afternoon after I got off work and before the kids got home from school.  

My sign and menu

The kids started calling it the "Mom-ster Cafe" ~ they're more clever than I am!

The Menu...
MAIN DISHES:  Mummy Dogs & Slimy Snails

(Barilla makes a carrot and squash pasta, yummy and good for you!)

SIDE DISHES: Witches' Fingertips, Zombie Hearts, Goblin Teeth, Pumpkin Guts and Snake Eggs in Swamp Slime!

I used the melon fusion flavor ~ nice swamp-y color and tastier than lime!

DESSERTS:  Witches' Fingers and Frankenstein Pudding

Bread sticks, cinnamon sugar, candy corn and drizzled frosting

Vanilla pudding tinted green and chocolate chips with a Frankenstein face drawn on the cup.

BEVERAGES:  Magical Spell Sodas 

The kids LOVED seeing what color their drink turned when I poured in the Sprite.

Needless to say, the kids LOVED it!  I had them dress in their costumes for dinner and I tried to speak in a spooky voice while taking their orders and serving each dish.  They actually ate everything ( calling asparagus Witches' Fingertips really worked magic ) and even had seconds on several things.

A few photos of them enjoying their meal...

Making their choices from the menu

He chose everything!
Mmm, Mummy Dogs, Goblin Teeth and Witches' Fingertips!

What kind of spell turned my soda green?

Snake Eggs in Swamp Slime?  Quite yummy!

Pudding with chocolate chips is a great dessert.

Without a doubt, I'll be doing something similar next year!  

I hope you all had a great Halloween as well!
