Cooking : Halloween 2006

Haven't had the chance to cook or bake in quite a while so I jumped at the chance to cook for the Halloween party that we had on Saturday. For last year's party, I baked a cupcake graveyard with tombstones, gummi worms and Oreo crumbs as sand. This year, I decided to go the savoury route... and I figured if I was going to cook, I might as well go all out :)

To fit the occasion, I prepared a few common dishes with an added Halloween twist.

Inspired by a cooking show I saw recently, I wanted to make "Pigs in a Blanket" - cocktail sausages wrapped in puff pastry... but gave it a gory twist...


It's supposed to look like severed fingers with a bandage wrapped around it :)

And for the Deviled Eggs, I added an olive and a drop of ketchup to make it look like eyes :)

Also prepared a Baked Pasta in case people were craving carbs...


And my usual Spicy Chicken Wings...


Yup, I prepared quite the spread :)

shimian - if you have an oven at your place, you should really try baking... it's much easier than it looks :)
