Around our house the treats don’t stop when the last pumpkin gets blown out. The kids know that when they are done trick-or-treating mom always has a fun dinner waiting for them and their friends.
This year the kids picked a green theme for Halloween. All of our decorations were done in green, the kids costumes were green and our entire dinner menu was green.
When I was planning the green menu, I was a little worried that the food wasn’t going to look very appetizing. I know when I think of green food the first thing that comes to mind is…… mold, and nothing turns your stomach like mold. However, I was up for the challenge!
To come up with the green menu, I first thought about all of the things related to Halloween that were green; Frankenstein, slime, goblins, witches, etc. Then I thought about how I could make those things into green food. The first thing I created were these Witch Fingers using a breadsticks recipe a little green food coloring and some almonds slice.

The breadsticks were seasoned with garlic and Parmesan cheese and went really well with the green toadstool soup that I made. The kids got a huge kick out of it all and no one thought mold when they saw it.
