Goblin grins and Monster mouths

10.30.12

You didn’t really think I’d let Halloween come and go without some kind of food to mark the occasion, did you?! I may not be dressing up this year, but since I have to eat anyway, why not make it fun and festive? These goblin grins and monster mouths add creativity to a boring fruit and vegetable platter, making them a perfect appetizer for a creepy costume party on October 31st (one that I’ll regrettably miss while I hole up in my house reading – sadface).

Lucas was shocked that I wouldn’t be going all out for Halloween this year; it is my favorite holiday, after all. I delight in sewing entirely homemade topical costumes, and pretty much anyone who’s ever met me knows I have a wicked weakness for sugary treats. Needless to say, not partaking in the merriment this year is making me sad. And since I’m certainly not one to give up an opportunity to concoct themed kitchen creations, I share with you these super quick eerie eats I whipped up this weekend to get in the holiday spirit. These two spooky snacks are much healthier than celebrating by digging into a bag of discounted fun-sized candies I could pick up at Walgreens on November 1st.

    HI Sarah,

    I met your brother Justin when we toured the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company on our weekend trip visiting the farms of the Sacramento Valley with the California Farm Water Coalition. He mentioned that you had a blog and that you live in Berkeley. My oldest daughter is a senior at Berkeley, studying History, Slavic Studies and Human Rights.
    Your blog is adorable and I am looking forward to getting to know you better through your stories:)
    I know that Halloween is over, but those treats are very cute (and healthy – a great balance for the tons of candy my kids bring home as a loot:)
