Halloween Dinner (with free printable!)

As the story goes, my mom made up this Halloween Dinner menu when we were little kids.
Apparently she did it on a whim one year before trick-or-treating and, much to her dismay, it stuck.

The true Halloween Dinner menu in my house growing up included hot dog spiders instead of hot dog mummies, but, to be quite honest with you, the mummies taste better.  So there.
(Although, in the spiders' defense, they are significantly faster to prepare.)

And speaking of improvements, my mom confessed to me yesterday that tonight she's brewing up potato soup instead of our traditional clam chowder.  All I can say is--duh!  That would taste so much better.  Next year we are totally doing that.

Should you decide to whip up your own Halloween Dinner on the fly this evening, I've included the printable of my menu signs below.

How to make the signs:

  • Print
  • Cut
  • Fold in half

Please note that this printable is for personal use only.  Thanks!

Anybody else serving up something disgusting tonight?

We will be eating many of the things you are...although we'll be going for the hot dog spiders because they so much easier than the hot dog mummies...even if they don't taste as good. I was going to skip the soup, but maybe I'll make Cheesy Chicken Corn Chowder...that's whitish yellow and a popular one around here.

We added Polly's pudding with spider webs to the menu for dessert: yum!

Great signs!!

Our tradition is fondue: we had chocolate, carmel, cheese, alfredo, and marinara saucea with all sorts of dippables - apples, strawberries, cream puffs, bananas, bread sticks, taquitos, tater tots and little smokies!
