Halloween table

October 31, 2010

Ghost glasses on the dining room table

The breakfast menu is:  eyeballs w/ lashes, ghost creme w/ rocks, ghost-cheese/broken broomstick/hot coals pie, monster mash and boo-berry coffee cake.   I also need to add that the menu is almost 100% gluten-free!!!  (We have a guest with a gluten intolerance).

At around 1 PM today, I decided I really needed something Halloween-y in the placemat department…which meant that I would  head down to the basement (where my sewing machine is) and whip up 4 new Halloween placemats…which was exactly what I did!  They worked up quickly and I was thrilled with the results!  What fun! 

The Halloween table is set and ready!  The white cups and saucers (I didn’t have any stark white ones) and the Dracula plate that you see in the center of the table were finds from the W.I.N. store that I bought today.  Total cost:  $ 5.

Translation for menu:  whole grapes w/ shredded cheese, yogurt w/ granola, goat cheese/asparagus/sweet potato quiche, blueberry coffee cake.  The quiche has an oatmeal crust (gluten free oatmeal flour) and for the coffee cake, I used a gluten free cake mix,with some added blueberries, along with about 3/4 cup of gluten free shortbread mix + a bit of brown sugar and some butter for the crumbly topping.
