Witches Brew tastes like – well, think apple pie and ice cream through a straw – perfect autumn goodness. Without the food coloring, it is worth serving at a gathering such as a fall shower or small get together. Add red, orange or green food coloring and it’s Halloween without a doubt. A two son mom is always looking for gross – but not too gross and definitely not gory – Halloween ideas. Food that looks gross but tastes great – that’s a win-win! Hence the choice of green food coloring 🙂
Costume ideas – no problem. There are very definite ideas, usually decided weeks in advance. Sometimes it is a challenge to make those ideas come to life, like the cartoon character that must look exactly like the tv show. Other years, easy peasy, like the soldier which means pulling dad’s Army fatigues out of the closet, pinning to fit and adding an eyebrow pencil beard. Yeah, I know no facial hair, but I’m not going to tell an eight year old that. And I wouldn’t tell him that this isn’t ghost buster ectoplasm or green monster breath either – if that’s what he wants to call it. Halloween is all about suspending reality for a while. Isn’t it?
