Halloween Treats For Grown-Ups
Let children have their candy. Adults can have their own fun!
Set up a horror movie marathon
Watch or rewatch the classics—Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Carrie—or choose a theme: black and white movies, B movies, vampires, ghosts… there’s no lack of options! Instead of popcorn, prepare raw vegetables or roasted cauliflower for snacking.
Invite friends over for a themed dinner
Why not make it a potluck? Here are some ideas:
Appetizer: Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern bell peppers
Main course: Pumpkin and chicken curry, again by Ricardo, or a squash- or pumpkin-based casserole
Dessert: Pumpkin pie, or the delicious ghoulish pumpkin mousse we suggest below
