Tales from a Handmade Halloween

This year for Halloween we wanted to do a little something different. Since we are in a house now, with a great neighborhood for trick-or-treating, we decided it would be awesome to stay at home and pass out candy. (Something we've never had a chance to do before because no kids really come up to your apartment door.) But, we also thought it would be fun to have a few friends over for a creepy Halloween themed dinner. It was all thrown together kind of last minute, which is typically how I like to do things--number one procrastinator right here! But it all turned out disgustingly delicious and fun. Our menu included 'finger' sandwiches, a revolting eye vomit soup (creamy tomato soup with eyeballs floating in it), mummy dogs (pigs in a blanket wrapped like mummies), bleeding rats (awesome meatballs that were shaped like rats sitting on mashed potatoes), poisoned candy apples, open heart salad, blood (jello) shots and a delicious graveyard cake. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I think I was too busy and excited. In the end we had more trick-or-treaters than candy, we laughed our way through a horrible horror film and ate our delicious ickies till we were stuffed. Here a a few of my fave images from the night.

Last minute costumes seem to sum us up well
