Last week, I shared with you my favorite Halloween decor ideas from around the web. In the spirit of the holiday and keeping a sophisticated Halloween get-together, I thought I’d share some ideas for a Halloween menu today.This menu is planned for an adult Halloween party. No mashed potato ghosts or vegetables with eyes here!
1. I’d start things off with these grilled fig tartines so that guests can have something to munch on as they arrive. I actually had an appetizer similar to this (but without the prosccuitto) at a dinner party last week and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since.
2. Once everyone was seated for dinner, I’d start off the first course with a butternut squash and lentil salad, like this one from Stacey Snacks.
3. Because I love a good soup and salad combo, I’d also serve this pumpkin soup, which, served in an actual personal pumpkin at each setting, could not be any cuter.
4. Thanks to this cookbook, my husband and I have a recent infatuation with roasting carrots whole, and this recipe puts a fun twist on the idea with a pesto made of carrot tops and cilantro.
5. There is something eerie and blissfully simple about these sweet and spicy drumsticks by A Spicy Perspective.
6. Finally, I would finish the meal with these mini apple cider donuts by Life & Kitchen. We finally made it to the pumpkin patch this past weekend and had a bag of cider donuts and it was the taste of fall perfected!
I know I promised you pumpkin patch photos last week, but we were rained out two weekends ago. I PROMISE they will be up THIS Friday though. They are in my camera, waiting to be uploaded!
What fun things are you cooking up for Halloween? The kid in me is dying to make these mummy wrapped hot dogs, but I will save it for snack time with my son and spare my friends and family a hot dog dinner!
