Halloween is creeping in on us....are you ready? I have tons of great ideas for Halloween fun including recipes, craft ideas and last minute decorating on my website but here is a little taste:
Witches Fingers and Toes1 Can Pillsbury Bread Sticks
Red Food Coloring
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Paint the end of each almond piece with a little water and red food coloring, lay to dry. Separate each bread stick and lay flat on a cookie sheet. Push together to create "knuckles" in three places on each "finger." Put the almond on the end of each piece to create the fingernails. Brush each piece with melted butter and bake as directed.
Unroll the crescent rolls. Cut each section into 2 pieces. Starting at the corner of each piece, put a sausage on the dough and roll up, leaving a little piece sticking out for the toes. Bake as directed. Serve with a basic marinara sauce and label it "Blood Clot sauce!"
WITCH WINDOW SILHOUETTE
I used two black foam boards (from Hobby Lobby) tapes together and a stencil I printed off the Internet (try ww.marthastewart.com). I simply enlarged the stencil and marked off where to cut with a piece of chalk. I then used fishing line and thumb tacks to hang it in the front window.

FYI - This week almost all of the candy coupons out there will expire on Saturday. CVS, Rtie Aid, even Ingles and Publix have great deals for Halloween candy. Check out http://www.southernsavers.com/ for the best deals. Use up your coupons this week for your child's school party, your trick-or-treater's candy, or donate the candy to your church fall festival or even just drop it off at the local children's or women's shelter for an added treat!
NOTE ON DONATING TO SHELTERS: For obvious safety reasons, I cannot post the addresses for these shelters. Please call the shelter for directions on dropping off the candies. Thanks!
