MY HALLOWEEN PARTY! BOOOOOOO YAHHHHHH!
Perks of living on a farm when hosting a Halloween party:
Having a nice big tractor so you don’t have to drag the cornstalks to the barn by hand.
Having a property that connects to the neighbours so I can so kindly make use of his out of season cow corn…he’ll never know! Hahaha…shhhh…
Having a country boy as a boyfriend who so kindly just cuts several stalks down with a swiss army knife in seconds then loads up the tractor for you. :)
Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
1 egg white
1/4 cup natural cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grained sea salt
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds
Preheat oven to 375. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the egg white, sugar, cayenne and salt. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Drain off any excess egg white (using a strainer) and place seeds in a single layer across a baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes or until seeds are golden. Sprinkle with a bit more sugar and cayenne pepper when they come out of the oven. Taste and season with more salt if needed.
Makes one cup.
Y’all like my pumpkin this year? Well one of them so far..
I can’t take credit for the design though, I based it pretty much off of a photo I found here on tumblr, whoever it belonged to…
Going to possibly carve another tonight or tomorrow. I need the pumpkin seeds to roast…
2 packs (3 oz) Raspberry jello
1 pkg unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
3/4 cup whipping cream
3 cups boiling water
15 drops green food coloring
100 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
Tall container (1 quart or 1 liter carton of milk)
1) Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
2) Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
3) Gather your straws (don’t forget to flex them out) and put them in the container. It’s important that the straws have a tight fit so the jello stays in the straws. For this reason, a 1 liter carton may be better; you will probably get longer worms since there is a tighter fit. If you have a bigger container, a rubber band around the straws is helpful. Or you could just add more straws to fill the container.
4) Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
5) There are multiple ways you can remove the worms from the straws. You can roll a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out or you can hold the straws over warm water. The worms will slip right out.
And voila! Jello worms are served.
My bedroom during Halloween (and every other day too, usually)!
Do you guys have any idea how bloody excited I am for this years Halloween Party?!?!
Nothing like last years rushed mess. Setting up in less than 3 hours…omg, that was hell, and it wasn’t even that pretty.
But really this year is gunna be gooooooood!!!
So I picked up last minute stuff today, table cloths, plates etc…
Plus a few other things because I couldn’t resist. So I got these paper pumpkins which I adore. Some labels for pop and water bottles (beats making my own which I was going to do until now). A sign for my scavenger hunt. & Two punch bowls…plus many other things!
