I have a recipe if you need.

Pumpkin Fettuccine or lasagna.

Caramel Apple sheet cake.

Spiked apple cider punch.
So it seems like you'd have to hollow out the pumpkin within a few hours of serving the soup - do you hollow the pumpkin "bowl", and then put it in the fridge to await the soup that evening?

That's a really cute idea.

the person in the office I targeted (wasn't sure if it was going to happen) was a sweetheart of a lady that calls everyone (dear..."deya") I wrote below the eyeballs "hello deer" and she didnt scream but made a couple surprising "whoops" and came right to me and called me a bastard (with a slight grin)

Last year I made a meatloaf in a Jack O'Lantern shaped cake pan and frosted it with mashed potatoes with carrots. Served the gravy in a pumpkin-shaped bowl.


You could easily use a skull-shaped cake pan instead and frost it with white mashed potatoes.


You can carve "shrunken heads" out of apples, only without shrinking them on the radiator the way we did when we were kids, and float them in cider in the slow cooker.


You can also freeze rubber gloves full of pink lemonade, peel the gloves off and float them in the punch.


Gingerbread bat cookies are always good! Add a few drops of black food color.


A lot of people make that layered taco dip into a graveyard scene with tortillas cut into the shapes of tombstones, leafless trees, ghosts, etc. and made crispy in the oven, then embedded in the dip.


I like to slice bun-length hotdogs in 4ths lengthwise, then pop them under the broiler so they curl up and look like worms. Douse them with ketchup and voila.


Or modify hot dogs this way:

Or serve your cheese and crackers this way:

Works great with crudites, too.

Another really simple idea is to use a Sharpie to draw Jack O'Lantern faces on tangerines, or on those little individual serving cups of mandarin oranges.

You can still have a Halloween party this year, just make it on a small scale. Do a large one next year!

All - Thank you for all the great ideas! Have a Happy Halloween!
Apple Carame Sheet Cake -

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon'
dash of nutmeg
3 cups peeled and cored apples (about 3 med-large apples)
11/2 tsp baking soda
21/3 cups all purpose flour

Icing -

1/2 cup unsalted butter
8 oz cream cheese
31/2 cups powdwdered sugar.
1/3 cup caramel sauce. I use Smuckers in the squit bottle and make it into checks.

Cake recipe -

Pre heat oven to 350.
Mix oil, apple sauce, and sugar well
Add eggs, one at a time until well blended
at vanilla, salt, spices and baking soda. Mix well.
Mix in flour until just combined
Spread on a well greased 13X18 jelly roll pan
bake 18-20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Icing recipe -

While the cake is baking, in a sauce pan, melt cream cheese,& Butter over medium heat Continue cooking until there are no lumps and mixture starts to bubble.
Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.
Pour on HOT cake. Once it cools, drizzle with caramel sauce.
Store in the refrigerator. Lightly cover with foil.

This is oooey gooey, really delicious, and full of apples.

The other recipes are coming and are even easier!

No. I'm bad. I hope the recipe does not disapoint I use canned pumpkin. The pumpkin is just a decoration. I do roast the seeds, though.

The soup is very good though and easy. I'll post it tomorrow. I still need to find it

Cheddar Corn bread coming up too!

These are the spices and basic recipe that I use. Slow Cooker Spicy and Creamy Pumpkin Soup

HOWEVER - I don't really like canola oil. If you do, fine. I use Grapeseed.

This recipe is vegan (one of my kids is very strict and that's when I found something like this) But, if you prefer dairy products use them instead. Full fat coconut milk is very rich, so I'd probably swap it out with cream instead of milk.

While the recipe calls for vegetable broth, feel free to use chicken. I don't make my own. I use "Imagine" brand.

As for the canned pumpkin, DO NOT USE PUMPKIN PIE FILLING - just plane PUMPKIN.

I serve this as a first course on Thanksgiving from a tureen but on Halloween I use a hollowed out pumpkin surrounded by Autumn leaves from a craft store. I cook the insides of the pumpkin and freeze it for my dogs. I know, I should probably learn to use it.

I do roast the seeds though.
