Halloween Dinner

I need HELP!!! I've been trying to find a Halloween Dinner. Unfortunately, I don't remember how the whole dinner went. I was hoping that someone can help me. Here is how I recall it going: Everyone was given a menu. Not your average menu, mind you. There were items like: eyeballs, pitch-fork, worms, ghost, etc. The guests would choose which items they wanted as their 1st course meal, then 2nd course, 3rd course, etc. They wouldn't know what they were ordering. In the kitchen, we'd have the code of what every item was, ie: eyeballs were Swedish meatballs, pitch-fork was a fork (of course), worms were spaghetti, ghost was a napkin. Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so . . . would you please send me the menu . . . and, of course, the code. I want to have this dinner for Halloween for family/friends. Thank you in advance.

Maybe you could search through these and see if you can find what you are looking for.

I can't remember just off hand what they are either. Hope these helped you.

Here are some ideas from Tawra Kellam's Living on a Dime newsletter:

Halloween Tips:
Fake Blood- Mix 2/3 cup white corn syrup, 1 tsp. red food coloring, 2-3 drops blue food coloring to darken and 1 squirt dish soap (helps blood to run well).
Abrasions -Dab brown, red and black eye shadow on area. Apply blood over area with cotton balls. Use comb to gently scratch area in one direction. Apply cocoa or dirt over wound with cotton balls.
Black Eye - Apply red and blue eye shadow to depressions around eyes.
Bruises - Rub red and blue shadow over bony area to simulate recent bruises. Use blue and yellow eye shadow to create older bruises.
Look Old - Cover face with baby powder. Draw dark lines on your skin for wrinkles. Smooth edges to blend. Cover again with baby powder. Add baby powder to your hair to create gray hair.
Deviled Eyeballs - Make deviled eggs. Add a green olive with pimento in the center for an "eyeball".
Radioactive Juice - Mix equal parts Mountain Dew and blue Kool-Aid
Toxic Juice - Add some green food coloring to lemonade for a spooky color!
Brains - Scramble eggs with some green, yellow and blue food coloring
Bloody Eyeballs - Boil cherry tomatoes 30 seconds. Allow to cool; then peel skin.
Goblin Hand - Freeze green Kool-Aid in a rubber or latex glove, float in punch.
Use the tape from old cassettes or black yarn to make spider webs.
Use cotton balls stretched out for small spider webs.
Glass Jack-o-Lantern - Outline a pumpkin face on a spaghetti or pickle jar with black paint. The paint around the outside of it with orange paint. Place a candle inside for a jack-o-lantern.
Edible Slime - Pour lime gelatin into a glass bowl. After it is partially set, add gummy worms. Chill until lightly set. Then serve slopped all over the plate.
Bloody Popcorn - Add red food color to melted butter and pour over popcorn.
Freeze gummy worms in ice cubes and add them to drinks. Cut gummy worms in half if needed.

We did that!!!! The kids loved it! I THINK the idea was printed in Family Fun like 4 years ago. Anyway,

You have the idea. I just came up w/my own menu of things I was willing to make and then came up w/some goulish name for it. Milk was "blood of a ghost", etc. Then on your computer put together a menu for them to check off their wish. I made my kids order the night prior. They were so pumped for dinner the next night. The following year they asked if they could put it on for my husband and I. It was great. Search "halloween mystery menu" see what you get. Good luck and have fun!!

Halloween Treats

I saw this on FB today and thought what a great idea:

Pretzel sticks with mini marshmallows on each end, then dipped in white chocolate:
