Anyhoo, back when the kids were
Here are a few of the dishes that have made the cut so far:
Witch fingers--These are green beans lightly sautéed in a little olive oil and then sprinkled with kosher
salt. I know it's so rude and I hate the green old-lady stereotype, being neither green nor old-ladyish myself. But if it gets a vegetable or two down my sweet offsprings' gullets, I will deal. For a bonus, if you toss some sesame seeds on it you can call them maggots.
Peas are obviously monster boogers. So is edamame. Honestly, the grosser the name, the more likely my creepy babies are to eat it.
Black lentils, or any lentils for that matter--eye of newt. HA! No witch in that food! I usually serve this in the form of Wicked Chili.
These are just a few of our favorites. When I'm being realistic I'll work a couple of these dishes into the kids' normal chicken-tender laden meal (except the chicken tenders are mummy scabs, of course). So, in case you were wondering, here's tonight's menu:
Scary pasta (Halloween themed pasta I picked up at the grocery--it's got bat and spider shapes. I should really stock up on this stuff now)
with creamy pus (white cheese sauce of course--straight out of the Velveeta packet)
and monster boogers.
I'll probably add a side of witch hair just to make the plate colorful.
I'm totally grossing myself out just writing about this right now.
