PUMPKIN JUICE

4 cups apple juice

1- 15 ounce can pumpkin puree (not pie filling!)

2 teaspoons ginger paste (or fresh grated ginger)

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/2 nutmeg, freshly grated (about 1 tablespoon of ground spice)

1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

1- 12 ounce can lemon-line soda (like Sprite)

Whisk together apple juice, pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper in a large pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and hold for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Slowly stir lemon-lime soda into cooled mixture. Strain and serve. (Recipe from Word Up, Nerd Up Blog, Photo from MentalFloss.com)



MUMMY MEATLOAF


Wrap your favorite meatloaf recipe in wide noodles or lasagna noodles! Add green or black olives for the eyes! Boo! (Photo from Mentalfloss.com)


Tentacle Pot Pie

Add diced chicken, peas, carrots, chicken broth and cheddar cheese to individual bowls. Use homemade crust or store bought to shape out these cute little critters and use olives for the eyes! You can also make individual fruit pies and cobblers and serve them up to all your little ghosts and goblins! (Photo from mentalfloss.com)

I LOVE the tenacle pot-pie! May have to make that soon.

I love pumpkin, but not sure I'm ready to drink it. I did have the butter beer at Universal Studios. The frozen is WAY better than the liquid.

What cute ideas for the Halloween holiday! I might have to do the tentacle pot pie. :-)

Ha ha, Vicki! That meatloaf cracks me up too! Ha ha! And no recipe...just make your dang meatloaf, wrap noodles around it and stick in some olives! LOL!

Liese, I'm not so sure about the pumpkin drink either and butter beer? Wow!

Kathy, isn't the tentacle pot pie adorable? LOL! I think it would be cute for cobblers too! :)

Thanks for stopping by, ladies! Happy Halloween!
