TRICK OR TREAT
SMELL MY FEET
GIVE ME SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT!

Last week was all about the real Halloween food – candy!
This week: Macabre Meatloaf!
Not only will children eat meatloaf but it is just about the easiest dish to prepare, so let’s focus on getting the kids out the door on Halloween with some real food in their bellies . . .
Here’s the best part: Meatloaf can be patted, poked, and pushed around to make it look like a nightmare. I found these next two photos on the Food Network page.
Horribly clever, don’t you think?
Do you think that’s a layer of hashbrowns underneath?

Try making a dead man meatloaf. Stick a knife into his gut just before serving. You can creep out the kids even more if you serve it on top of spaghetti “snakes” or macaroni “maggots.”
Let your imagination run wild! If you have kids between 12 and 17 they can add their own ghoulish details. Fake blood seems to be a favorite among this set – and entirely appropriate at this dinner table!
Fill them up with wholesome horror food and then let the sugar high begin!
