Halloween Party

The scariest of holidays is coming up! I love to see the kids in their costumes and all the crazy neighborhood decorations. It’s so festive.

Some kids I know will be dressing up as emojis this Saturday. Is that a sign of the times or what? I mean, what happened to plastic masks of princesses and football players with eye, nose and mouth cutouts? Wow.

I always pulled out an old dance costume and put it on and I was set. I don’t know if that flies anymore. Things were so much simpler then.

My kids have reached the age where they no longer dress up. It’s all about the party now. Halloween decorations and food and friends. Just another excuse to get together!

So, will you be hosting any dressed up emojis or smartphones at your house for a Halloween party? Walking around the neighborhood, trolling for candy is a tiring business. You’ve got to feed these people – before and after the trick or treating.

It’s a party, right? So, for me, there will always be steaks! Believe me, parents will be hungry, too, and a great steak will make all the lugging around of candy bags worth it. A reward of sorts.

You can even get creative and trim your steaks into little ghost- or pumpkin-shaped medallions for the kids. They love that. And it’s so fun to really get into the spirit of it! All cuts of steak will do. A filet mignon will work as well as a ribeye or Kansas City strip steak. You can even stick little toothpicks with eyeballs on them into the steaks. Use your imagination to make it fun!

After all, Halloween is supposed to be fun – you might as well eat well in the process!

What will you be serving this Halloween?

Halloween Dinner and a Movie


Want something delicious – and deliciously creepy – this Halloween?

Try feet loaf! It’s meat loaf in the shape of ghoulish feet. But, hey, it’s still the same, wonderful ground beef you love. Just Halloweenitized!

With garlic toes and ketchup blood, you’re sure to be grossed out and satisfied at the same time!

Click here for this perfect Halloween meal recipe.

Then, watch a scary movie like Halloween, Halloween 2, Halloween 3… for the full effect.

With a deliciously creepy theme in all you do – and eat – this Halloween will be one to remember!

Have a Beefy Halloween!

It’s that time of year! The time when adults adorn themselves with clothing they would never normally sport – you know, like something in the shape of a cheeseburger or a steak … or Darth Vader.

Children are adorable as princesses, baseball players, Thor and chicken nuggets.

But I think all the kids’ costumes are just to throw us off. This holiday is really for adults who want to dress up.

It cracks me up when of all the things someone could be for Halloween, they choose meat. MEAT.

Like this…

But to each his own, right?

Hope YOU have a beefy Halloween!!!
